Today, I taught the lesson to all of the young women at church today. It was about realizing that each person is divine and eternal and treating others with that in mind. We were talking about how most people make judgments of total strangers. Most of the time it is only by the outside appearance. I told the girls about some of the outside appearances that I have had in my lifetime. Let me show you what I was like once upon a time…
Yep, I was a total bandana wearing, screamo music listening, band t-shirt wearing, mosh pit jumping, Warped Tour going (and every other good show I could fit in) girl. I LOVED it. A lot of times, I ran on no sleep after going to shows late at night and waking up early for school. I miss those days sometimes, but I am proud of who I am today. I still listen to some of the music that I used to listen to, but I wouldn’t fight you for pretending you knew more about bands than I do. Yep, I did that.
I wonder what people’s judgments were about me back then. Maybe I don’t want to know, but what I learned from teaching my lesson today… Who are we to make anyone feel any less than what their Heavenly Father thinks of them. So smile at a stranger, pass judgment, and tell someone that you care about, that you care!
