Scripture: Matthew 7: 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
Observation: Lately I’ve been doing this more, looking at the faults of others and ignoring mine. It’s most likely if I focus on others I feel better about myself and then I don’t have to change, just everyone else.
Application: Realize the only person I can change is me. I don’t have to focus on my faults, but what God asks of me. If I can become the man God calls me to be I can be an influence to others and help guide them to Christ, my example. If I stop looking at the faults of others it will be easier to love them and I will have more time focusing on living my life right.
Prayer: Dear Lord give me a kinder heart so I may please you. May I look at others with love as you do and look at ways to become more like You in my life.
