Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment.
Measure your maturity not against your peers or your parents, but against Jesus.

Be a person who hates your own sin more than the sins of others.
