Funny how this happens...

So, last night I had a bit of a tiff with a friend of mine. And as I was brushing me teeth Phil. 2:5 came to mind:
"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus."
And immediately I thought:
"Yeah, my friend's attitude should have been the same as Jesus'. In fact it should always be! They often have a poor attitude and they need to work on changing it. I'm going to share this verse with them and hopefully they'll get it, and start changing their attitude because I'm sick of it!"
And then God spoke to me as He often does and He said:
"Ummm...Catherine, you might want to change your own attitude first. Because it does say YOUR attitude should be the same mine, not everyone else's should be the same as mine. You're only responsible for your own."
"Oh yeah...thanks God."

Yet another one of those lessons that goes along the lines of taking the plank out of your own eye before you remove the speck from someone else's.

And that now you've dealt with your sawdust, go forth with judgement and criticism to heal the wrongdoers around you!

what would Jesus / Allah / Moses do?

Should we include Buddha? What of Gandhi?
