More Confessing, Less JudgingTuesday, January 17, 2017
"First take the log out of your own eye" (Matthew 7:5).
Christian love is not blind. God never says, “Ignore the faults of others.” But He does say, “Take care of your own faults first.” Look in the mirror! Ask God to show you your sins.
The familiar words of Psalm 139:23-24 come to mind: “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” If we would pray that way and mean it, we would do a lot more confessing and a lot less judging.
