Luke 6:37-49    "Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven...

Jesus' words in Luke 6:37-42 are so true. Why is it that we are so good at seeing other people's short comings and sins but not so quick to see our own? All too often our tendency is to eagerly point the finger anywhere but at ourselves. 

This is an important command from Jesus. I totally know that, yet, there are plenty of times that I fail to keep it. And I'm guessing most of us would fall into this category? 

So how do we make keeping Jesus' command in verse 42 our norm? Our "logs" are all different, so think about what yours might be, and then consider what you can do to remove it/them. Tami W.
