Luke 6 - Key

v42

Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.

A lot of this chapter, from the beginning about eating corn and healing the whithered hand on the Sabbath, to the parts about returning good for evil and not being a hypocritical judge, seems to talk about this idea.

When somebody else is doing something wrong, I tend to not pay enough attention to making sure my own behavior is right. For example, if somebody does something wrong, I might be mad and talk to them in an angry tone. I shouldn't do that.

Application

I'll think of something good to do for a certain person.


From: He Keeps Me Singing

By Lu­ther Bridg­ers in 1910
Though sometimes He leads through waters deep,
Trials fall across the way,
Though sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
See His footprints all the way.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Sweetest Name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.
