Hey guys! Todays Sunshine Sunday post will be about Matthew 7:3-4; “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers’s eye, but considerest not the beam in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine own eye; and behold, a beam is in thine own eye?”
This verse is saying that you need to look into your own life before you tell someone else what they are doing wrong. When you are making the wrong choices in your life, how can you teach someone else to not do these same things? In the first part of this verse it says, “why beholdest thou the mote that is in they brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam in thine own eye?” Jesus is using the example of a “mote”, which is the smallest piece of sawdust there is. He is asking, why are you worried about the small problem in someone elses life, when you have a huge problem in your own life?
The second verse is asking, why would you tell the other person how to fix their small problum, when you still have a large problem in your own life? The illustration that Jesus is giving here shows us that we need to examine the problem in our own life before we go try to help another person with their problems. With Gods help, we need to fix our own problems before we can help someone else that has that same problem. By practicing this, it will equip us to be able to help the other person that is having the same problem that we used to have.
