Condemning Our Own Sins and Forgiving the Sins of Others (St. Andrew of Crete)

By St. Andrew of Crete

All of us should seek two things: to condemn our sins and forgive the sins of others. For whoever sees their own sins becomes more forgiving towards others. And whoever condemns others condemns and convicts themselves, even if they have many virtues. It is truly a great thing, my brethren, to not condemn others but to condemn ourselves.
