Joshua’s dad wasn’t faithful to his mother, so they divorced. In the years after the divorce Joshua acted out his anger at his situation by
getting into trouble with the law. After a few years he straightened out his life. He was doing well in school, had an after-school job, a girlfriend, and was being considered for an athletic scholarship for a local private school. Eventually he might even receive a college scholarship, which would mean that his mother wouldn’t have to worry about paying for college. Then some money was stolen from the place where he worked. Everyone acted as if Joshua had gone back to his old ways. Was that fair of them? Why or why not?

Matthew 7:1-2

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.


Even though Joshua had a bad record in the past, that doesn't mean that it was him this time around. Carful investigation of EVERYONE should occur before judgements are decided. Its not fair to prejudge and condemn. What if God did that to us (man, that would be terrifying)?

I don't think it was Joshua that did it - it was probably someone else. If he had done it he would have lost all the good things he'd got, job, sports scholarship and so on.

I think that they should investigate EVERYTHING before jumping to conclusions!

It was not fair of them to assume it was Joshua. We, as Christians, should not judge others. Those people should have given Joshua a chance, just like in a court of law, you are innocent until proven guilty.
2 Timothy 4:7- I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
