Imitating Christ - #52: Bearing with the defects of others

We want to have others strictly reprimanded for their offenses, but we will not be reprimanded ourselves.  We are inclined to think the other man has too much liberty, but we ourselves will not put up with any restraint.  There must be rules for everyone else, but we must be given free rein.  It is seldom that we consider our neighbor equally with ourselves.  

If everyone was perfect, what would we have to endure for the love of God.
