When you will not look at your own faults

Luke Bible Background

New Testament: Luke 6.41–42a

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 6.27–49 on March 29, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

Sometimes you have to ask an obvious question that no one else is asking. Jesus did this frequently, as in this case:

“And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye?”

– Luke 6.41–42

Should it not be obvious that if I have a plank in my eye that I have a bigger problem than my brother who has a speck in his eye? If that is so, why do we ignore our greater problem and concentrate on our brother’s lessor problem?

Questions:

  • How could someone not see a plank in his own eye?
  • Do you have a tendency to do this?
