Today’s quote is one that makes so much of logical sense, definitely one to widen our perspectives.
Albert Einstein once said:
Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish 🐟 by its ability to climb a tree 🌲 , it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”
Now how absurd would that be: judging a fish by its ability to climb a tree right?
Similarly, we cannot judge people based on what we FEEL or THINK is right.
I can relate to this so much. We could never understand why my baby brother just didn’t do well in school, academically. He would pass subjects like Maths but fail English and Afrikaans. Yet today, he stands as a junior chef that is quickly gaining popularity because of his skill and work ethic in the kitchen.
Who would have thought? We thought he was doomed because he couldn’t do one grade just once, he always repeated and didn’t even complete his matric!
Some people fight different struggles, they have different habitats and background stories. It really isn’t about where they are, but rather, where they are going. Then, we put them in situations that they’re just not cut out for, Whether it’s academically, socially or even professionally. It doesn’t make them any less of a person, it simply means that God created a different path for them, he gave them a different gift to bless the world with, an essential gift just for them.
Let’s remember this whenever we feel we’re about to judge a person’s ability to do something that maybe is just not set out for them.
