Proverbs 17:9
“Disregarding another person’s faults preserves love; telling about them separates close friends.”

Here’s a personal zinger! As moms we are called upon to correct papers, fix mistakes, look for details out of place and formulate better, more efficient plans for regular duties. We do this so often, in fact, that it becomes second nature to look for what’s wrong…in homework, housework, and humanity.

As employees and bosses we're called to the same kind of "constructive criticism" type of mentality. We are constantly looking for a better way, a better employee, a better this or a better that...

Ask yourself what faults you regard…do those you're closest to have annoying habits? Do your children have character flaws you pray no one else will notice? Do you often think that “they” have a lot of learning to do? Then take them to the Father and release them asking Him to help you DISregard the faults of others and simply love them through His everlasting love.
