Judge Not

This morning I decided to do a combination post of A Yeyo’s Letter and I Dedicate. There’s so much of a message in the song, that I couldn’t pass the chance to pass on some words of wisdom to both my baby and to you!

To my little sweet pea,

The context of this song is WAY over your head, but you’ll get it one day. It’s about judging others. What does that mean, mommy? Well basically, it means to always worry about your own life and the things that you are doing before you spend time worrying about the lives of others. It’s very important that you always work hard at being the best person YOU can be and never judge or criticize people if they’re still getting to where you are or even where you may want to be.

Jesus says in the Bible :

Matthew 7

 1DO not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves.

    2For just as you judge and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you [use to] deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you.

    3Why do you [a]stare from without at the [b]very small particle that is in your brother’s eye but do not become aware of and consider the beam [c]of timber that is in your own eye?

    4Or how can you say to your brother, Let me get the tiny particle out of your eye, when there is the beam [d]of timber in your own eye?

    5You hypocrite, first get the beam of timber out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the tiny particle out of your brother’s eye.

So overall, the bottom line to treat others the same way you them to treat you. Your dad and I plan to do our best to teach you how to do that.

The lyrics to this song ( “People Person” by Donnie) sums it all up! Listen carefully and take heed.

Well, I know this girl named Bonita
She’s what all the boys call the freaka
If you don’t wanna get fired
Don’t you put no swine on her plate

Well I know this dude from the Islands
He want boom boom for the batty man
But I heard from above came the true meaning of one love

So who are we to give up on anyone?
And he that is without sin first cast the stone
Judge not lest ye be judged with the same judgment

Well I know this dude who’s a pusher
He got any drug you can think of
And he’ll sling it your way everyday but the Sabbath Day

Well I know this small sect of Muslims
Who don’t like drug dealers so they kill ’em
Every three from afar you can hear them praying to Allah

So who are we to give up on anyone?
And he that is without sin first cast the stone
Judge not lest ye be judged with the same judgment

But who are we to give up on anyone?
And he that is without sin first cast the stone
Judge not lest ye be judged with the same judgment
Same judgment, same judgment

I’m married to the backslider but we are in love
So who are you to talk about a life that I have touched?
Be a people person, be a people person

And I know this girl named Bonita
Her name Bonita, they call her freaka

Well I know this dude who’s a preacher
You can feel the anointing when he meets ya
But I refuse to ignore he be lusting for the deacon board

And I know this woman who be praying
Hear them spiritual words she be saying
Get a drink in her hand and she’ll curse you like a sailor man

So who are we to give up on anyone?
And he that is without sin first cast the stone
Judge not lest ye be judged with the same judgment

But who are we to give up on anyone?
And he that is without sin first cast the stone
Judge not lest ye be judged with the same judgment
Same judgment, same

Well, I know this girl named Bonita
