Faulty Reflections

Roxborough is a dramatic serif, influenced by calligraphy and handwritten lettering. Rich, open construction – built around a distinctive single-storey “a” – pairs nicely with the stylized, expressive italics. Both traditional and chic in aesthetic, Roxborough transforms text into art; it adapts to many applications, including branding and identity design, display and packaging design, subtitles, and copy.

What is a  faulty reflection? Look at this quote:

"What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?" 

It is so easy to see the shortcomings in others that are similar to the ones we see reflected in our own mirrors. We are often without mercy for the very people who, in reality, are more like us than we would like to admit. 

I learned this in parenting and watching other parent. The child that most resembles us faces a tougher parenting regime. We can almost read their minds. We want them to avoid our mistakes. We have to remember that each of us has to make our own mistakes to really learn. 

Who are the other people around us that share our faults? Are we patient with them? Do we show grace, mercy and forgiveness? 

"Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love." - Ephesians 4:2

Be humble and gentle. Love others... with all of their imperfections... because Christ loved us. We are perfectly imperfect, but his love love is deep and wide.

Today, I am grateful for faulty reflections.
