If someone were to ask if you feel like you have grown over time, how would you answer? Are you different than you were six months ago or even a year ago? Most of us would answer with a resounding, “Yes”! I believe we improve with age, much like wine. Perhaps we become wiser, calmer or even more generous. So why do we look at others and judge, or assume, the person they are today is who they will always be? We do not know who they will become or what they are capable of doing in the future. We also do not know what they may have been in the past. Maybe instead of being skeptical because we do not like what we see, we should have faith knowing they too will learn and grow in time.
How are you improving overtime? Better yet, how much grace are you showing others going through the same growth process?
