Thought of the Day !!

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? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
                                                                    Matthew 7:3-5 (NIV)

How easy it is to find fault in others.  How much harder it is to find fault in ourselves.  Almost daily we can find someone somewhere pointing out the flaws in another person.  How often is it that this person is you?

Jesus is telling us that we need to realize that no person is perfect.  And even though some believe that they're better than others, that pride may be the one thing right there that makes them less perfect than someone else.  The key to this scripture, as with many other of Jesus' teachings, is humility.  Let us try to work on fixing the imperfections in our own lives before we go pointing out the flaws in other peoples' lives.

In the love of Christ,
