Don't Focus on Fault, Flaws or Failings of Another

Posted by Al Hathaway Monday, January 4, 2016

"Henceforth know we no man after the flesh."  2 Corinthians 5:16

"Do you look at things according to the outward appearance?' 2 Corinthians 10:7

This Monday's reflection is relevant to the current news of the day. Many of us have witnessed the public fall from grace of Dr. William H. Cosby. It is heart wrenching to witness this celebrated personality become ridiculed and ostracized. How easy it is to focus upon a perceived fault, flaw or failing? When is it appropriate to point a finger at someone else without any critique of one's own faults, flaws or failings?

The challenge of the reading yesterday and today is when observing the issues of others, maybe we need to take a second look? Maybe instead of a fleeting glance, maybe we should take the time to behold?

Beholding something probes for a deeper meaning.

Beholding something places your own behavior under scrutiny.

Beholding doesn't just look at the outside or surface of a situation, it forces one to develop a deeper analysis that is not judgmental.

Nest time you are prone to critique someone, maybe that is the best time to examine oneself.
