You should thankfully consider how great a mercy this is, that you have so many eyes to watch over you, and to tell you of your faults, and so have greater helps than others, at least for the restraining of your sin. Though they may do it with a malicious mind, yet you have the advantage by it.
Take heed to yourselves; for the honour of the Lord and Master, and of His holy truth and ways do lie more on you than on other men. As you may do Him more service, so always more disservice than others. The nearer men stand to God the greater dishonour has He by their failures; and the more they will be imputed by foolish men to God Himself.
