Until You Walk a Mile in His Moccasins

Today I have a story for you.

Once upon a time there was a young mother.  She and her husband had young children, and worked hard to care for them.  She also provided care for other children.

The young mother was expecting another child.  The baby was in danger of coming too early.  The doctor put the young mother on bedrest.  She continued to provide care for other children.

Family, friends, and neighbors started talking about her and did not want to help her.

Her husband’s sister and mother were good friends and liked to talk to each other.  One day they talked about the young mother.  Husband’s sister judged young mother would not help either.  (She did not Desire Higher, did she?)

Baby was born early.  She was sick, but Heavenly Father blessed her and made her better.

Many years passed.

One day young mother was talking with husband’s sister.  They were now good friends.  Young mother talked about when she was expecting the baby and  continued to provide care for other children.  She said it was a very hard time for her, that no one wanted to help her.

She explained that she provided care for other children because they were older than her children.  So they could help her with her own children.

Husband’s sister was very ashamed and learned a great Desire Higher lesson, which is the moral of this story: Do not judge another until you have walked a mile in his moccasins.

Better yet, do not judge another.  You do not know the whole story or the circumstances that lead to his decisions or actions.
