Hoeing While Sitting

by | Jun 9, 1998 | Acceptance, Judging

While on a walk one day, I was surprised to see a man hoeing his garden while sitting in a chair.

“What laziness!” I thought. But suddenly I saw, leaning against his chair, a pair of crutches. The man was at work despite his handicap.

The lesson I learned about snap judgments that day has stayed with me for years now: the crosses people bear are seldom in plain sight.
