Ron: Oh, that’s convicting but it’s true! I judge others more harshly, but give myself the benefit of the doubt because I know what I’m trying to do. I have good intentions. My wife is disrespectful because of how she talked to me, but my tone wasn’t disrespectful because I was trying to help her. My child is disobedient when he “forgot” to take out the trash, but I was going to do it—I just forgot.
