No Diversion – Matthew 7:3-5

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Matthew 7:3-5
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.

I want to make a statement here that I hope you never forget. You ready? Pointing out someone else’s faults doesn’t get rid of yours. It’s a fact and a harsh truth that many just don’t like. While we may be able to get someone to look at another’s faults to not notice our’s, we will never be able to distract YHWH’s attention from ours.

He already knows theirs faults. You’re not telling Him anything new and He’s just as familiar with yours as well. Is getting others to think highly of you more important than having YHWH think highly of you? Instead of diverting to others faults, shouldn’t we be fixing ours?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
