Planks in our eyes

Judging others is a dangerous thing. None of us have led blameless lives and we all fall short of what God asks of us. Sometimes we do it to feel better about ourselves, or to put others in their place. Usually we do it because we don’t see the fragility and struggles of other people’s lives. We can also be afraid to look at them in our own lives. To accept humbly our own limitations means we are less likely to judge others.
