Matthew 7:1-5

“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye” – Quite often, because we are so quick to judge others, we are unable to see the obstacles in front of us and the ditches in our own paths. Indeed, we need to stop worrying about pebbles in the paths of others and spend more time focusing on the road we’re traveling on so we can avoid the boulders and pitfalls we don’t see ahead of us because we’re too busy looking at others’ walk so intently! And if we truly want to be more fruitful and productive in our own walk and our own ministries, then we need to stay in our lanes and pay attention to the road in front of us and stop trying to determine what others are doing and where they’re going!!
