Two taxidermists stopped before a window in which an owl was on display. They immediately began to criticize the way it was mounted. It's eyes were not natural; it's wings were not in proportion with it's head; it's feathers were not neatly arranged; and it's feet could be improved.
When they had finished with their criticism, the old owl turned his head ... and winked at them.
There is a natural tendency on the part of all humans to find fault. We all look at one another and make a decision whether to criticize or not. Many are unable to control themselves and get carried away with finding a need to make improvements in the other person.
"Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better that themselves." Philippians 2:3
"Dear Lord, help me to be a fault finder no longer." God bless you and yours today, and remember that you are loved!!!
