We recently had an outside company come remove the old linoleum flooring from our entry way and den. They did a great job, and cleaned up after themselves quite nicely.
The next morning I needed to sweep up something, and went into the laundry room for the broom and dustpan, but they were nowhere to be found.
All I could imagine was the two men that had removed the flooring must have used them to clean up after themelves, and taken them with them. Ugh! How rude!
My sweet husband went out and purchased a new broom and dustpan set for me, so all was fine.
Today I walked into the master bedroom to measure the size of the room, and this is what I found.
That would be our broom and dustpan hiding behind a shovel used to clean up the bathroom tile demo project the weekend prior.
The men that removed our flooring had not touched my broom and dustpan. Only I had. I was embarrassed for thinking such thoughts. For shifting the blame from myself where it should have fallen to some innocent workers that happened to be at the right place at the wrong time. I was humbled.
My advice to you is this. Be careful before you cast judgment on another. Or else you just might be eating humble pie. And I’ll have mine with a little whip cream on it please. To help choke it down.
And I’d like to sweep my poor choice of thoughts right under the rug with that broom and dustpan if I could. But I can’t. I thought it.
Let’s all make sure we leave judgment to God where it belongs. Or we, too, shall be judged, with equal measure.
And I think I might just hop on that luttle broom of mine, and fly it out of here. That’s how I was behaving.
Do not judge, or you too will be judged. Matthew 7:1
