PLANK VS SPECK

It’s so easy to point out other people’s flaws and mistakes partly because flaws and mistakes always look better on other people….right? Wrong! Jesus said in Matt 7:2-5, ” For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged. 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? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.”  

KEY POINT: If you’re gonna judge someone go deeper than the offense. John 7:24 says, “Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.” At the end of the day, top of the morning, it’s not about who’s right because we are all in one way or another partially wrong and if you are 1% wrong you are 100% wrong….just saying! “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12
