Watson: the beam in our own eye

Wednesday, December 5, 2018
    [Jesus:] “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)
    If we see a speck in a brother’s eye, we must first see if there is a log in our own eye; perhaps that speck in our brother’s eye is only a reflection of the beam in our own.

    See also Matt. 7:3-5; 2 Sam. 12:5-7; Ps. 50:16-21; Luke 6:41-42; 18:11; John 8:7-9; Rom. 2:1,21-23; Gal. 6:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to know my sin.
