To find fault is easy; to do better may be difficult. (Plutarch, ancient Greek philosopher)
Things must not have been much different in the first century before Christ. Finding fault is still an easy practice for too many of us. When we are critical of others and their work, we often are speaking out of a sense of pride as if we wouldn’t make the same kinds of mistakes. How much better it would be if we were simply to work hard to do better at our own work and service.
Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. (Ephesians 4:2)
