Luke 6:37-42 (NIV)
37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
39 He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40 The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
41 “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? 42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
Father, how sad it is that some people are so quick to judge others, so eager to see the fault in others while failing to see their own flaws and shortcomings. Your word calls this hypocrisy. Lord, open my eyes to who really am before You – a sinner saved by grace. I am no better than the person beside me so have no right to sit in judgement of anybody. help me to focus on improving myself and strengthening my walk with You instead of focusing on other’s faults. For the truth is I have nothing to prove but everything to improve.
