That’s my fault

“Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love”

Ephesians 4:2 (NLT)

Saint Augustine once said, “Patience is the companion of wisdom.” We can’t be just flat out be patient with others. It takes thought and prayer. We can’t be so quick to correct and criticize others. There is a story behind each fault that springs up in a person.

When a friend has a fault, pray and study the the cause. Choose wisely any words of advice, knowing that each of us has our own flaws.

If we let the faults of others make us angry, then we will be angry all the time. Everyone has them!


Heavenly Father, help me to be patient with myself and with others as I see faults. Teach me to care instead of criticize. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
