Face Value – a forgotten thing?

We are living in a judgemental world and we are all guilty of falling in to its trap, we like to label people, we like conspiracy theories and we love to ‘lord it over’ others…..and this is just the Christian populace! One thing we may not be so good at is taking things at face value – sometimes people’s action are simply that, an action, an action for actions sake.

It is possible that someone tweeted a good quote because it’s a good quote rather than trying to teach/complain/have a dig/get one up on others.
It is possible that the compliment someone paid is because they were being kind rather than seeking to get in your good books.
It is possible that the comment made was to share a thought rather than for malicious reasons.

I wonder what would happen if we took things at face value for a day. Would we find a better environment? Maybe. It may just be that we would think of people in a better light if we tried to do that more often. I am going to try and make an effort to see what happens. Could be fun.
