I cherish being with those exceptional people who always see the best in others. One of my dearest friends is such a person. He truly and sincerely walks in love. I have never heard him criticize or speak ill of anyone, politicians aside. He is kind, compassionate, and looks only at his own flaws and short-comings. He loves his neighbors as himself, even when he disagrees with them. He inspires me.
I try not to share any negative words to influence others’ opinions about others; rather, to let others form their own opinion based on their experience, not mine.
I try not to criticize others. I try to remember to see others as I am–imperfect. Often I fail.
Imagine if we all looked first at our own imperfections before finding fault with others.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
