Some of what bothers us is not a question of filth or sin; but of the ways we are frustrated by each other’s uniqueness.

How a person communicates, cultural differences, manners and idiosyncrasies drive us to distraction! These frustrations are not really sins in the other person, but stir up sin in us. Some people are filled with anger, contempt and condemnation for things that the other person who has no ill intentions.

We have many differences that will inspire our need for tolerance and patience. Some people would do well to stop the running commentary on everything they observe. Instead of letting the thought turn into a sinful action or statement, renew your mind with Christ’s view of the world.
