Do you have a beam in your eye?

Mt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6

We can be so quick to notice someone else's sin or fault can't we? Especially when it is not something we personally struggle with. We can make excuses for our faults/sins. You know "well my walk is really difficult", others don't struggle with this so they don't realize what I go through", walk a mile in my shoes and you will understand" (wait didn't Christ say if they ask you to go one go two?)

First of all sin is sin. God doesn't see it as some big or some small. It is all ugly to Him. And it should be to us also. Let's remember the above verse that says we will be judged in the same way that we judge others.
Prayerfully that will make us less quickly judge others.

Lord show us all the beam in our own eye.
