I draw attention into my being to examine where I might be inconsistent and overbearing in expecting of others what I do not even fulfill myself.
I feel humbled by what I recognize as my own inconsistency and wish to be more gentle and loving toward others who are, like me, on the human journey too.
“How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,’ when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.” – Luke 6.42
