"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? ESV
Why is it we can see others' shortcomings and sins, and we perceive them like we are looking through a magnifying glass? When we look at our own downfalls, we tend to minimize and rationalize them until we see them as practically no big deal. Being spiritually in tune with the Lord gives us the ability to see that we have logs in our eyes and are in need of major spiritual surgery. When we allow the Lord to perform that spiritually surgery on us, only then can we humbly and lovingly help our fellow Christians get the splinters out of their eyes.
Heavenly Father, we ask for Your grace when we come across others that we feel need to be corrected. Help us to first examine ourselves so that we can get the logs our of our own eyes. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
