Thought for Today (3/20/2017)

Today is the first day of spring; a day of new beginnings; a day where the past should be laid to rest.  With that in mind, it is a day to take account of one’s own life and focus another year on fixing one’s own faults and sins. Unless your own life is absolutely spotless of even one iota of fault (which is mortally impossible), do not spend your time pointing out faults in others.

There are many aphorisms to remind us of this.

Geoffrey Chaucer wrote in the year 1385 wrote “Whose house is of glass, must not throw stones at another.” (People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.)

I wrote in 2012 – “Overlooking faults in others can help keep your own a mystery to you.”

Matthew 7:1-3 says “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

God Bless.
