Day’s Verse:
Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. It takes one to know one. Judgmental criticism of others is a well-known way of escaping detection in your own crimes and misdemeanors. But God isn’t so easily diverted. He sees right through all such smoke screens and holds you to what you’ve done.
Romans 2:1-2 (context)

I wore two layers of pants and a pair of gloves, so my left hand sustained a deep and painful bruise (but no blood) and my right knee sustained an equally deep bruise and started bleeding, although my pants did not rip. I got back on my bike and rode to work.

Happier note: Some of these six-word stories are great.
