Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 22, 2015:
Jesus said to His disciples:
“STOP JUDGING, THAT YOU MAY NOT BE JUDGED. FOR AS YOU JUDGE, SO WILL YOU BE JUDGED, AND THE MEASURE WITH WHICH YOU MEASURE WILL BE MEASURED OUT TO YOU.
WHY DO YOU NOTICE THE SPLINTER IN YOUR BROTHER’S EYE, BUT DO NOT PERCEIVE THE WOODEN BEAM IN YOUR OWN EYE?
How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove that splinter from your eye,’ while the wooden beam is in your eye?
YOU HYPOCRITE, REMOVE THE WOODEN BEAM FROM YOUR EYE FIRST; THEN YOU WILL SEE CLEARLY TO REMOVE THE SPLINTER FROM YOUR BROTHER’S EYE.”
– From the Gospel of Matthew 7:1-5
*Why do we always notice others mistakes instead of ours?
*Why is it so difficult to admit our own mistakes or wrong doings?
*Why do we take for granted the wooden beams in our eyes before working on others?
Saint of the Day:
St. Thomas More, pray for us.
Mind your own splinters,
