Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? Matthew 7:3
Its easy to point out the flaws and failures of others, but what about yourself? Can you look in the mirror and be accountable for your flaws and failures also? Jesus teaches us this principle, judgement is not ours, whoever judges another is condemning themselves.
Problem is when we spend so much time on analyzing others people’s flaws, we tend to forgot our own. Its important we strive to live like Christ and allow him to live in us. How did Jesus view others? Remember when the woman caught in adultery, instead of Jesus condemning her to death her forgave her of her sins. Then Jesus said “Let anyone of you who is without sin, cast the first stone (John 8:7) Nobody condemned her then, why? Because we are all guilty, we are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God (Romans 3:23)
So is there a plank in your own eye? Meaning do you have some unresolved sin in your life? Is your life a reflection of Christ or the world? Stop looking at the sin in other people lives and reflect on your own life. Are you ready to stand before Jesus with a clean heart and mind? Repent your sins for the kingdom of God is at hand (Matthew 3:2)in Jesus name Amen
So easy to cast the first stone Its harder to search your own soul -For King and Country – Ceasefire
