What’s Blocking Your View?

Plank eyeJudge not, that you be not judged.  For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.  Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?  Or how can you say to your brother: Let me take the speck out of your eye; when there is the log in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:1-5)

If we are all sinners, why are we so interested in other people’s sin instead of ours? Is it because ours are so much bigger blocking our view that we no longer see it? Take heed to yourself and do not pass judgement on someone’s child. It is before God that they stand or fall, and He is able to lift them up. Who gave you authority to judge others, is it not God who asked you not to judge? First look to yourself, then you will not have time to see the speck in the other person’s eye. Have you notice that the person you are judging is the one with the smaller item in their eyes? Think seriously when you decide to remove the tiny speck from the eye of someone, when that person before you can see that your plank is bigger. Don’t judge others, for it is the plank in your eyes that’s blocking your view. Go home, first remove your own plank, then you will have a better view of how tiny the other person’s speck is. I said this in love, so that the children of God can be perfected. Don’t die of plank eye disease. God bless.
