LPM Memory Verse #5

Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other,
making allowance for each other's faults
because of your love.
Ephesians 4:2

I suffer from a condition I like to call Oldest Daughter Syndrome, or ODS for short. Because of it, I usually feel I have the right, obligation even, to point out everything that is wrong with every situation, whether or not it concerns me. There is a support group for this, but it is usually full of other oldest daughters, who will cheer me on in my quest for the correction of others. Of course, this is totally not my fault. I did not ask to be born first.
In all seriousness, though, I do tend toward criticalness. But I still need to take responsibility for that, whatever the reason. It is my plan to keep this scripture at the front of my brain, and on the tip of my tongue, to use it as a filter before anything spews out.
