The Plank In My Eye

The Plank in My Eye Luke 6:39-42 Main Point: Messiah Jesus counsels us to first remove the plank in our own eye (my glaring failure), before seeking to remove the speck (minor fault), in my brother’s or sister’s eye! Verse 39 We should not seek to lead someone else, until we clearly see our own way (have a right account of ourselves). Verse 40 We should take the stance of a student/learner of Jesus, with humility, not above Him - always trying to correct others - then we will have the right heart and attitude. 1. Focus on your own failures and seek Jesus to transform you! (verses 41-42) Verse 42 When you focus on other’s faults you can’t even see your own failures! Psalm 51:9-13 2. If you see a fault in your brother or sister, check yourself to be sure you are correcting them for their good, not your pride, and in love! (verse 42) Ephesians 4:29 Ephesians 4:15 We are to speak the truth in love to each other!
