A Beam in my Eye

27 Apr

One morning, during my sporadic prayer time, I was aking God about a situation in a friend’s life. I could see that her family was being torn apart and tried. I also had the answer for her; I knew exactly what she needed to do in her trial. I wasn’t sure how to speak the truth in love.

While asking God how to tell a friend the answer to her problems, I began to flip through the Bible. Now, I don’t just flip and, ta-da, find the perfect verse but this time God wanted my attention, and there it was! God had a Word for my dilemma…Luke 6:41-42. “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s (sister’s) eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” BUSTED! What could I say? This was for me…read on, though, it gets better. “Either how canst thou say to thy brother (sister), 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…” Whoa! Me? A hypocrite? Yep. Looks like it through God’s eye.

Boy, that hurt, but not as bad as it would have I went to my friend and tried to pull out the mote from her eye. No telling what I would have pulled out, considering I couldn’t see around the beam in mine own eyes! What a mess I would have made. When the blind lead the blind, they both fall in the ditch. That is Luke 6:39…just a few verses before the beam in the eye verses! Thank God I sought His Word before falling in the ditch with my friend. This way, I fell in the ditch by myself and no one knew. God helped me out and all is well.

Oh! The beam in my eye is taken care of; judgementalness. Hmmmm. Maybe I can stay out of the ditch!

Need answers anyone? Ask Jesus!
