Faults Are Thick Where Love is Thin

Have you ever noticed...

When others are set in their ways, they're obstinate...but you are firm and resolved.

When your neighbor doesn't like your friend, she's prejudiced...but when you don't like her friend, you're a good judge of human nature.

When she tries to treat someone especially well, she's buttering up the person...but when you do so, you're being thoughtful.

When she takes time to do things well, she's lazy...but when you do so, you're meticulous.

When she spends a lot, she's a spendthrift...but when you overdo, you're generous.

When she picks flaws in things, she's critical...but when you do, you are perceptive.

When she is mild-mannered, you call her weak...but when you are, you're gracious.

When she dresses well, she is extravagant...but when you do, you're tastefully in style.

When she says what she thinks, she's spiteful...but when you do, you're being honest.

When she takes great risks, she's foolhardy...but when you do, you're brave.

And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:  for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8
