Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Matthew 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Matthew 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Matthew 7:4 Or 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?
Matthew 7:5 Thou 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.
Brothers, if we judge our brothers by our standard, then we will be judged by God of that same standard. By what measure we measure against our brothers, that measure will be measured by God upon us.
If we look upon our brothers and determine that he is not seeing clearly. Our brothers may indeed have a mote (splenter) in his eye which is hendering him from seeing the truth of Gods word. But, how can we help him to see if we have a beam in our own eye. We must first allow
Jesus to pull the beam from our own eye before we can help our brother pull the mote (splenter) from his eye that he might clearly see the truth of God's word. Jesus himself tells us here in verse 4 that it is Jesus who must remove the beam from your eye, so that you may see clearly to teach your brother what Jesus would have you teach him.
Jesus says that we are a hypocrite if we attempt to teach our brother, unless we first allow Jesus to teach us. Matthew 7:5 KJV
