Close to the vest

Take an ear, there was once a man who held a candle that all in the room might see, it was a good thing, and the man held the candle high over his head that the light to all was free, in time the candle was held close to his vest so he became the brightest and the best  People would marvel at him and proclaimed what a good work. The close held candle made an outer darkness where once there was light. Another man stepped up with a candle and proclaimed the sum of both is more than the two, as reflective light will dispel the dim and fill in the gloom where no light had been. The man with the candle close to the vest became incensed and cried out that the uninvited guest with another candle only does this to be seen of men and receive glory unto himself, I will douse his flame with outrage unless agreed that his light can only help illuminate me.

Hypocrisy ”specifically, the baffling double standards of people who condemn in others the very offenses they themselves are committing”.

If you spot it, you got it! It’s when you point the accusatory self-righteous finger, there are three fingers pointing back at you.

We have found that the defects and flaws of character that are least tolerated and most recognized in others are the ones that find in ourselves a safe harbor

We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion and the illusion of control.

See you on the Radio
