Matthew 7v1-5:

1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.

2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?

5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

The righteousness that Jesus expects of His followers is evidenced by a genuine concern about sin that looks first at us, then outward to help others.

Check yourself and see Christ completeness in you then relate the message to others. You will be threading on the ground of hypocrisy if your concern about sin doesn’t deal with your own first, before focusing on the sins of others

As leaders of ministries and genuine Christians our attitude to sins will be taken seriously if we start looking at ourselves in the mirror of God’s Word. 2nd Cor.3v2 “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men”

“The parent who quickly and strongly rebukes a child for wrong, while ignoring his or her own failures as a parent eventually loses the trust of the child.” – David Doran

Stop Being hypocritical!
