We would rather focus on anybody other than our own self
but our spirit commands us to self reflect.
We would rather fix all the things wrong with the world
but our spirit makes us incorruptible instead.
How hard do we make it for another to change their heart
when they know we count faults and do not forgive?
And when fault is come to turn toward us
how hard now has it become for them to forgive us?
In all of that strife there is only iniquity and misery.
There is no victory in shaming one another.
How do two stubborn people end their quarrel?
With striving pain and affliction of anger and hatred.
Endure through all things with patience and understanding.
Nothing is ever solved without the will to love and forgive one another.
These greatest truths all come from Jesus.
1Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. 6Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
