How to see your own faults

Reading

Matthew 7:1-5:

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

1 Timothy 2:1-2:

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

Challenge

Discuss / Describe why we point out the faults of others and remain blind to our own. Why do you think that God commands us not to judge?

Prayer

Dear God, in Your Word You tell us to not judge one another (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Open my eyes to what You want to change in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
