Our topic this week is haughty eyes – or pride – or arrogance, you know the drill.
But let me flip it for you a little. What if a situation gave you FULL authority to be proud, to show your authority over another? What would you do then?
The answer lies in this wonderful little video that went viral a couple of months ago – it is about a judge passing a sentence to a man convicted of burglary theft.
As he was about to leave, the judge asked him if he went to a particular school. Immediately he recognised her and broke into uncontrollable sobs. They were classmates in the same school while growing up. One became a convict, another a judge. Imagine this situation.
The thing is, she could have chided him – gloated about where she has reached in life, and where he was, a convicted burglar.
Rather, she gently told him, “I hope you can change your ways, you were the nicest kid.” Hearing that the man burst into tears, only managing to say, “Oh my goodness…!”
Thanks to this kind and humble judge, there is a good chance that the man will possibly mend his ways and turn to an honest life.
Watch the video – and keep a box of tissues nearby. You will need it.
