I struggle with a lot of things. One of them is focusing on flaws in other people, especially when they are people who are close to me and who’s behavior hurts me. Today I was reminded that the only reason we should acknowledge the flaws in others is only to deepen our hatred of what is ugly within us. In turn, deepening our wonder of a God who forgives so much. It’s not to say that people don’t suck or let you down or make poor decisions, but its about redirecting your thoughts to yourself and reflecting on how that characteristic might appear in your own life. It’s about always striving to be better.
