It has been a while that I dropped by with some words on this
platform. It is always a privilege that I do not take for granted sharing
some insights with you from time to time. Hope all is well with you and your

In my generation today, I have discovered that there are many
ways of avoiding correction and an apt phrase drawn from the scripture is
always used. Exodus 2:14a "And he said, Who made thee a prince
and a judge over us?". Let's brood on the topic- Judging vs Correcting
Judging someone is by administering a verdict. From a
practical standpoint, a judge comes up with his own binding view after
listening to all the parties involved. Many times, a judgement can only be

Correcting someone is a way of advising the person to see
issues from another viewpoint from where he is standing. In the process of correcting,
the person with a superior stance needs a lifestyle that justifies the
correction, the person that is being corrected has the opportunity to weigh the
advise and come up with a healthy and balanced opinion.
Those who come up with that phrase, "Who made you a
judge over me" technically shut others up in order to keep indulging in
the wrong lifestyle while those who are willing to take corrections will view
it from a persuasive stance which will redefine his or her attitude to life.
At all times, remember this, "in criticizing to correct
someone, you should focus more on killing the issue, rather than discreetly
killing the personality." When the personality is killed that's judging
when the person when the issue is discussed that's correcting.
Let's not mistake correctional intentions as a judgmental
Have a great week ahead.
