The Imitation of Christ

I have a new iPod Touch application that shares quotes from Thomas a'Kempis' "The Imitation of Christ." From what I understand, this ancient work of spiritual depth is the most widely read spiritual literature besides the Bible.

It opened my heart to a whole new world of spirituality to read it several years ago. As I feel led, I will share quotes from this great work from time to time on my blog. Here's one:

Seek to be patient in bearing with other's faults and infirmities whatever they are, for you, also, have many things others have to put up with. If you cannot change yourself into what you desire, how are you going to be able to change someone else into what you desire? We are always ready to see others become perfect, but we do not change our own shortcomings.
