We don’t really see ourselves clearly until our behavior is reflected in someone else’s life. (Maggie Rowe, actress and writer)
Rowe also said, “Our faults irritate us most when we see them in others.” Parents might be surprised (shocked?) when they see that their children’s behavior is merely mimicking what they have seen in their mom or dad. We need to be careful how we live; our behavior will likely be imitated by others.
Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
