The Reflection In the Mirror

One Of The Most Important Things To Remember

Many Christians, especially "young ones in the faith" become overly exuberant, too zealous; and yes, too judgmental about issues. I have been guilty of this also. It's only natural to do this.

I would suggest it's once again time to remember that none on this Earth are "good" - NONE - No President, no blogger, no Priest, Minister, Pastor, Teacher, Pope - ANYONE!

So let's all try to remember; be kind and loving, patient; when dealing with our brothers and sisters.

Luke 18
10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican (a tax collector).
11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
