The Laws of Christ for Common Life. Chapter 6. Judging Others

How is it that we are so quick in discovering, and so stern in condemning, a slight fault in another man, and are unconscious that we ourselves are guilty of a greater fault — and, perhaps, a greater fault of the same kind? About the fact there can be no doubt. Conscience in some men seems to consist chiefly in a keen eye for other men’s sins. They cannot have much time for self-examination, for they are nearly always occupied in the close scrutiny of the character and conduct of their neighbours. They expend so much moral indignation on the sins of others that they can have very little left for their own.
