Specks And Logs

Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Matthew 7:1-12  It seems to me that perhaps by the usage of the words speck and log, the one who judges carries the greater burden. Who can see with a log in their eye? At best our judgment of others is flawed because of our inability to “see.” I believe Jesus challenges us to thoroughly examine ourselves first. If we look close and thoroughly enough, we may find that we don’t have time for removing the specks from others because removing the login us is a lifelong commitment. Today, rather than judge, let us encourage one another in Christ to do what is right, and see if the specks and logs don’t fall from all of our eyes, by the power of the Holy Spirit and not our own.

  1. They are falling as I type. Thank you for such good encouragement to ‘clean up our own act’. And to always think many, many times before correcting others. Praying is essential and saying all in love. If the Lord does not guide or lead in it…get out!! 🙂 It is not ours to be involved…it is His and we need to just pray for the other one.

    Thank you Sister!!
