"Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

. . . You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye and then you will see clearly to take out

the speck that is in your brother's eye."

Luke 6:41,42

If you are looking for a partial definition of a hypocrite, here it is!

While hypocrisy is just one of our many self-consuming traits,

it is a sinful,

intertwined way of life

that furthers our own sins

while deceiving others.



Are we not eager to repair some small sin

in another person,

when we are in need of a major repair ourselves?

God doesn't say

we are never to help with the speck

that is in our brother's eye,

but He does say we must first subject

ourselves to our own scrutiny.



  As Christians we are to avoid being over-curious, inquiring into the faults of others

so as to condemn them,

while trying to appear

more righteous

than they.

Scritpure instructs us to first discern God's will for ourselves, then use loving discretion to aid our brother.
