So many times people are judged by the actions they present to the world, and not the motivations that caused those actions. So often the world condemns or praises by just what they see without ever realizing what the condition of the heart was that motivates those actions. So much of the world is just pictures and cover ups for what really exists inside. I have known the kindest, nicest people who have done some really horrible things but meant it for the well. I have seen the grandest things done for those who harbor only darkness and evil inside. I learned you can't judge who a person really is, by the actions they may take, unless you know and understand the motivations of their heart. Its like snow that covers the world in a white fluffy blanket, and turns it into a winter wonderland. But unless you knew what was there before the snow fell, you have no real way to know how solid the ground beneath that blanket is. People's hearts are like that too. Sometimes covered in clean white ice, to hide the corruption and hate inside. I have learned to tread very carefully until I know for sure how solid the ground is, or how true be the heart of a friend.
