“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? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

– Matthew 7:3-5 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

We are quick to point out other people’s faults, but Jesus warns us that our reactions may be tied to behaviors that reflect our own weakness. In other words, the judgments that we hold of other people’s actions become a convenient diversion from our own inconsistency, and this causes hypocrisy, for we place ourselves above others without realizing that we can be guilty of the very same sin.
