Jesus asks, "Why?"

Red-Letter Monday
 
"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?" (Matthew 7:3)

Why? Why do we see the speck in our brother's eye, but not the log in our own eye? Here's just a random list, a few possibilities:

1) It's easier to look at others than self.
2) We feel better when speaking of others' misgivings.
3) We'd rather use our hands to point, than to help.
4) It doesn't cost anything to expose faults.
5) We forget who the Master is.

Just some thoughts. What do you think?

  1. Very good points. Short, but to the point, and something to think about!
