Look Inside

today's reading.
Luke 6:37-42   "Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven...

the blog.
Jesus is very clear in Luke 6:37-42 that it's not our job to go around judging and condemning others. Yet, have you noticed how this is very much our tendency? Honestly, it's a lot easier for me to look at someone else and be critical than it is to step up to the plate and take an honest look at my own heart and actions. But, that's exactly the point Jesus makes when he talks about removing the log from our own eye before we even concern ourselves with the speck we think we see in someone else. 

Based on Jesus' words in Luke 6:37-42, what will you do differently the next time that critical attitude raises its ugly head? What can you do right now to proactively look for your logs? Tami W.
