WE ALL HAVE A BLIND SPOT
All of us have a blind spot, and I do mean all of us — including me. We must all be careful that we do not judge or criticize others because we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God, but we recognize that we have been saved by the grace of God. There are times we are blinded by our own shortcomings, but we find ourselves finding fault with someone else. We should ask God to remove our own blind spots and to keep us from casting judgement on someone else. In Matthew 7:5,we find these words:
Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye
Jesus speaks about the importance of not judging others so that we will not be judged. The Master says that we must get rid of the spec in our own eye, making it clear that we are not to judge our brothers and sister, for when we judge others, we too will be judged. Thanks be to God that He loves us in spite of the plank in our own eyes.
