Looking at My Own Flaws

Let’s clean our side of the street first….

I hope it’s different for you, but I sure had to do a lot of work before I could escape this type of automatic thinking.

I am talking about the type of thinking that naturally looks to find the bad or faults in others and then find another person or 2 to share it with.

I remember that false sense of superiority I seemed to get when I took another person’s inventory and automatically found myself to be in a better condition.

But wait, I forgot to look at my own shortcomings, faults, and character defects.

I wish I could say I am completely free of this type of thinking, but I can’t.

What I can share is that when I do find myself entertaining thoughts of comparing myself to another only looking for the negative,

I can now stop this thinking with a simple prayer and ask God to direct my thinking to find the good in others…

Check your experience…

“The only condition is that he trust in God and clean house.” Big Book pg. 98

Lord let us look to improve ourselves and work on our own faults and shortcomings before we begin finding the faults and shortcomings in others, AMEN.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” Matthew 7:3

Have a blessed day Y’all!
