Looking For What?

Have you ever known people who spent most of their time looking for the faults in other people? I use to know a woman who was always probing me for information about people in the church. She wasn't really concerned about how to help but was more preoccupied with their faults. We can always find faults with others and even ourselves. Its easy because we all have them.


The pharisees wanted to find fault with Jesus as he taught and healed. They watched him carefully, eagerly awaiting a reason to justify their loathing of him. Jesus on the other hand went about doing good and used his wisdom to question their cold hearts. We all need to look first for the good in other people and seek to bring it out. Let us control our negative attitude and seek positive relationships with all people.
