You Might Be A Hypocrite

Good Monday morning to you! When you spend all of your time pointing out the flaws of others and ignore your own, you’re a hypocrite according to Jesus.

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? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. – Matthew 7:3-5 (NIV)

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, if you judge others for their sins all the while ignoring your own, you might be a hypocrite. Stop pointing out the flaws of those around you and start working on your own. Don’t condemn people for the sins you struggle with as well. Clean up your own back yard before you go digging in someone else’s.
