Faults in Perspective

"When we look at others’ faults, our eyes have a strange magnifying effect; but when we turn the glass on ourselves, it reduces and minimizes our sins. We see extenuating circumstances, and our self-love weaves a veil of embroidery which hides the corruption within. Men can wax eloquent over world wrongs, social wrongs, and never imagine that in their own homes they are tyrants and heartless despots. Just as some loathed disease is less tolerable when seen in another than in ourselves, so sin looks worse in my neighbor than it does in me."


Daily Proverb

Proverbs 20:27

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
