In This, We Must Practice Great Caution

We can’t help but compare ourselves to others, and other to one another.  Unfortunately, we frequently use these observations to feel superior or inferior to people around us.  We should therefore practice great caution in evaluating the spiritual maturity of people around us.  We can, and at times do, use this information to judge and demean other, or we can use it to love and encourage.
