(Love) It is not rude, not self -seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
We are all responsible to God for our own actions. He requires us "Not" keep wrong records of others. It is easier to look at someone and make a big parade of what are doing or have not done that seems to be out of line, rather than looking at ourselves. Romans 3:12, "There is no one who does good, not even one." We all have faults, we all fall into the sin of pride when we begin judge the actions of others, considering ourselves better than they are.
Today, consider taking your next thought of what someone has done that you perceive wrong, and privately give it to God and pray for them. Have you ever drop a stone in calm water and watch the ripples continue? that's what happens when we do not exercise self-control when handling wrongs of others, the ripple of sin just continue to flow.
