Good Morning

And become useful and helpful and kind to one another,
tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted),
forgiving one another [readily and freely],
as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 Amplified Bible

HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED—

When the other fellow acts that way, he is ugly;

when yo do , it is nerves.

When the other fellow is set in his ways, he is obstinate;

when you are, it is firmness.

When the other fellow does not like your friend, his is prejudiced;

when you do not like his;
you simply are showing that you are a good judge of human nature.

When the other fellow takes time to do things, he is dead slow;

when you do , you are deliberate.

When the other fellow spends alot, he is spendthrift;

when you do, you are generous.

When the other fellow picks flaws in things, he is cranky;

when you do , you are discriminating.

When the other fellow is mild in his manners, he is weak;

when you are, you are gracious.

when the other fellow gets destructive, he is tough;

when you do, you are forceful.

~~from The King’s Highway

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,
but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matthew  7:3

Noticing. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
