"They make," wrote Thomas Becon (c.1560)
"of a molehill a mountain."
Politicians do it at election time
Preachers do it on Sunday
Husbands do it to their wives
Mothers do it to their children
Employers do it to their employees.
Alas, it appears that all of us are sometimes
guilty of making mountains out of molehills.
How easily, with the same breath, we
condone our own actions while at the same
time we condemn our neighbors' actions.
How easy it is...to see the speck of sand
in the eye or our fellowman...
And so difficult to recognize...the boulder
on our shoulder.
May we learn to be less critical of others
as we become older...
And, become greater lovers of our
fellow-mole (er, man).
