The faults of others
“Do not be like children who throw stones at each other,” Jesus said.
This is the golden rule that summarizes the law and the prophets: treat others as you would like to be treated. Do not judge; do not enter into the sacred temple of your neighbor’s intentions. There is no greater sin than always thinking of the faults of others. What a strange thing: you notice a speck in another’s eye while there is a wide plank before your eyes! Be like our Father who returns good for evil. If anyone wants to take away your shawl, offer him your tunic. Love your enemies and pray for those persecuting and calumniating you.
Half of the loaf belongs to the other, but even so, it is wise to have something extra just in case an unexpected guest arrives.
“All of you are brothers”.
