And He also spoke a parable to them: “A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Will they not both fall into a pit? A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher. Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye. (Luke 6:39-42 NASB)
One of the most well-known parables of Jesus is the “Plank-eyed Ophthalmologist”. The context is more of the “judgmental” issue I looked at yesterday. Here Jesus talks about “self-awareness” which is different. I still believe it has to do with judging others, but doing so with a humble self-aware attitude.
