Matthew 7:3 ” 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?”

The words of Jesus here have never been clearer. So why do we love to find fault in others but won’t even consider the blatant sin in our own life a problem? It’s because we don’t want to be identified as a sinner, and we’ll go to great lengths to distance ourselves from that dubious title. We seem to forget that the Bible tells us that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But we’d rather “Gloss Over” our sin and focus on someone else’s. The reality is we’re no where as “Good” as we imagine ourselves to be, or want others to believe about us. The bottom line is, all of us are needy and vulnerable to temptation and sin on a daily basis…and a little humility and self-assessment could go a long way in comprehending what Jesus was saying to us here.
