Hoe your own row

Do not be irritated either with those who sin or those who offend; do not have a passion for noticing every sin in your neighbor and for judging him, as we are in the habit of doing.  Everyone shall give an answer to God for himself.  Everyone has a conscience; everyone hears God's Word, and knows God's will either from books or from conversation with other people.  Especially do not look with evil intention upon the sins of your elders, which do not regard you; "to his own master he standeth or falleth."  Correct your own sins, amend your own life.
