Seeing The Best in People
- 2018 30 Jul
We tend to judge ourselves easily, and others harshly. Sad but true. We notice the faults in others while overlooking our shortcomings. Scripture tells us that we will be forgiven by the same measure we forgive others. That is sobering news for me, and perhaps for you as well. Do you tend to notice and even talk about others in a negative light? Try seeing them as simply people trying to be human, flaws and all. They are generally doing the best they can.
