Matthew 7:3

Verse: 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?

Insight: Jesus is teaching us to take self inventory of our own lives seriously. Isn’t it easier to notice the issues and problems in others - even the little things - than it is to actually invite Jesus to work on the issues in our own life? Next time you’re wanting to check someone, take a moment to make sure that what you’re looking through clear eyes.

Prayer: Jesus, I invite you to help me see myself and others honestly. Thank you for working on me from the inside out - bringing me to a life in color. In your name, Amen.
