Even the Great Apostle Paul had to be told "Son, my Grace is sufficient". So if you are striving to be Christlike and you seem to be doing well, remember not everybody is. Some people are fighting disappointment, discouragement, and old fashioned temptation. If you are a few miles ahead of somebody in your spiritual walk, try to think back to when you were at their current spiritual mile marker. What scripture or encouragement helped you the most? And always deliver the message as though you are beside them not from above looking down. Only The Father deserves that spot.
