Titus 3: 3

For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.

Paul gives us the perfect example for being patient and kind with others, ourselves We once were just as painful to be around as the unlovely are to us now. I praise God that we are growing and learning to be more like Christ but let us not lose sight of where we were before His grace moved in our lives. We demonstrated all of the undesirable traits above and probably a few more. Now as we are learning to be more like Christ we must learn to love and be kind to people even while they are in an unenlightened state just like Christ was generous and forgiving with us. I do not say that it is always easy but by focusing our attention on those qualities God would have us develop we come up just a bit higher. Set your sights on the heights. You will bless those around you.
