Wisdom For Each Day – August 15, 2014

Why is it easier to see someone else’s faults than to see our own?  I can think of several reasons – but one of the strongest is because we naturally love ourselves more than we love other people.  And because we love ourselves, we don’t like to criticize ourselves or admit our faults – because that can be painful, and we don’t like pain.

But the Bible tells us to love others just as much as we love ourselves.  Jesus, in fact, taught that this commandment – along with the commandment to love God above all else – summarizes God’s Law (see Luke 10:27).

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Leviticus 19:18
