Along The Broken Road

"He who grows in grace remembers that he is but dust, and he therefore does not expect his fellow Christians to be anything more. He overlooks ten thousand of their faults, because he knows his God overlooks twenty thousand in his own case. He does not expect perfection in the creature, and, therefore, he is not disappointed when he does not find it. When our virtues become more mature, we shall not be more tolerant of evil; but we shall be more tolerant of infirmity, more hopeful for the people of God, and certainly less arrogant in our criticisms." C. H. Spurgeon

What a great quote Stew. The journey of maturation is sometimes painful but thankfully we have the great saints ( and preachers and authors) before us to remind us of where we have come from, where we are now, and where we strive to be.
