Beam in the eye


The Lord blessed us with another great productive week. The hard working crew from First Baptist Church Jonesboro, LA set the huge beams for the main floor of the new church building.

Seeing the massive beams flying in, I couldn’t imagine getting hit in the head with one of those things, much less poked in the eye with it. This thought reminds me of Jesus’ rebuke of the religious hypocrites of his day, when they could point out their neighbor’s offensive fleck of sawdust, but overlooked the beam sticking out of their own eye sockets. Why can we see the tiny faults in others so clearly, but miss our own big ones?
