Looking for the good in people shouldn't be hard. Since we are all the children of the Lord, there should be plenty of good to find. However, with some people, it seems, at times, hard to find that good.
When I was having problems finding the good in a particular individual, I realized that maybe the problem was mine, rather than his. Maybe I should have been thinking of "the beam in my own eye" rather than "the mote in his."
That's not always easy to do. It's more than difficult to admit my own failings, much easier to see the faults of another. Another example of my human frailness.
So, for today, I am grateful for those people who always find the good in others.
