I truly hope that I am, although my fear is that I am not. I am a pastor's wife and try to live to the best of my ability like Christ would live and yet inspite of myself I see things in other people that I don't like and my first instinct is to tell them about it.

I do not tell them most of the time because as I said my first instinct is to tell them. By the time I've had time to think about it I get a look at myself and see how rotten I can be as well. On the whole, when you look at the church most people are kind and considerate of others. The small number that I see that are ugly to one another are few in number. Thank the Lord. I think we all spend a great deal of time looking on the negative side of life rather than the positive.
