I Would Never Judge A Book By Its Cover

Never judge a book by its cover!

Cause you don't know what lies within its pages.

No matter how good or bad its cover may appear,

You have no idea what that book has been through.

Many books have been misjudged just because the cover wasnt appealing.

But if you would've opened it up and read a few of its pages,

You would have realized this has wisdom, knowledge and was put together with care,

And a lot of time and patience was put into constructing this book.

Still many continue to choose their books based on the way the cover looks.

Once they've purchased this book and opened it up,its pages are filled with useless words and meaningless expressions.

It's not a book they would normally read or want to read, yet alone recommend to anybody else.

Now this book just sits on the shelves with all the other books with cool covers.

While the book that didn't appear to be any good, is being passed around for all those willing and wanting to read this book that is filled with so much wisdom.

As the Bible says "Don't judge others unless you want to be judged."

Because you never know what that person has been through, where that person has been, what that person has seen, or what is in that person's heart based on appearance, until you have taken the time to get to know that person.

Unfortunately, you just might walk past a person who could make a difference in your life!

Very true indeed. Not only do you not know how someone ended up where they are, but you should never judge people based on some predetermined value set. Everybody has some inner value and they also have their own unique sense of value. Somebody might not be financially successful simply because they have no desire for monetary riches. They could however be a generous and loving person who measures their own success by how many people they help during their life.
