Thought of the Day June 9, 2016

"O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to your servant. Yes, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother; for you are blessed unto ages of ages. Amen." (Ephrem the Syrian) How true it is that we have enough sins to deal with before we bother about the sins of another. Jesus rightly said: Be concern with the plank in your own eye before you point to the splinter in the eye of another. How much wasteful time we would avoid, if we cleansed our own house first.
