Don't we often think we know best for others and yet our own problems need no advice? Since I've never had weight issues, I have to remind myself that my lack of desire to exercise is just as bad as overeating. We think we could change the world, if people would just think like we do, huh? That is a pretty arrogant attitude, if you think about it. Sometimes we concentrate on others faults without seeing our own right before us. Psalm 19:12 ''But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.'' I've heard that what bothers us most in others is often a weakness in our own lives.
We cannot change others but only lead by example. Working on the improvement of yourself is the only construction zone that needs a changing by you. We can plant seeds in others but the Holy Spirit controls the growth of it.
I think this is a subject that should cause a humbling effect in all of us and remind us that we don't know it all. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. We are all vulnerable and weak with faults.
