The Beauty of Christ’s Scale“We would willingly have others perfect, and yet we amend not our own faults…how seldom we weigh our neighbour in the same balance with ourselves.” (Thomas a Kempis, Imitation of Christ. Book 1, Ch XVI)

What if we held everyone around us to the same standard as ourselves, how differently would our judgments of others look?

Better yet, what if we held everyone to the same standard as Christ holds us? The beauty of Christ’s scale is that when we’re found lacking, He balances it with a perfect mixture of grace and truth.
