Indeed the more love we have for Christ the more love we will have for others. I am particularly thin skinned and take everything personally. Perhaps, less so now than in the past. I remember hearing a great line from Professor Donald Macleod in a sermon years ago: Criticism only hurts when it's true. At the time I disagreed but now I am not so sure. Also we do well to try and encourage others and to help them progress in the faith and knowledge of Christ.
