It is very easy to judge others and put them down to lift ourselves up.
Thank God, that we now can live in His righteousness and not our own.
Let our words be season with Grace and our hearts pure and honest, when
talking about or dealing with others, Let us esteem others better than ourselves.
Colossians 4:6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
A little seed lay on the ground
And soon began to sprout.
“Now, which of all the flowers around,”
It mused, “shall I come out?
The lily’s face is fair and proud,
But just a trifle cold.
The rose, I think, is rather loud,
And then, its fashions old.
The violet is all very well,
But not a flower I’d choose;
Nor yet the Canterbury bell —
I never cared for blues.”
And so it criticized each flower,
This supercilious seed,
Until it woke one summer morn,
And found itself — a weed.
