Let’s Call It…

It’s so easy to see the flaws in someone else.

It’s so easy to say, “Why doesn’t she see it?  Why doesn’t she do something about it?”

It’s NOT so easy to recognize that I am the “she” someone else is talking about…

But I am. 

YOU are.

This week I’m asking myself, “What’s the ‘THING’ in my way of a better life?

In the way of the life I’m intended to live? 

What’s yours? 

Let’s call it by name and start to do something about it…

 

Something to think about…

Reminds me of that Scripture where we are told to remove the plank from our eye before we complain about the speck in someone else’s eye….

Oh, yes! That ties in to it perfectly, doesn’t it? 2 Samuel 12 too, where Nathan is rebuking David… Sigh. Obviously an ongoing issue for us humans, huh?

I think I wrestle with this every day. Lord have mercy. I am truly under construction!

Such a great reminder to my often judgmental heart- look inward, not outward! 🙂

yes! thank you for sharing this today – so often I’m finding fault with others, but need to look more closely at my actions.

Yes. Excellent reminder. And a question I find that I ask myself a lot these days. Although… sometimes I don’t want the answer! 🙂
