log in my eye

Lately I've tried to pay really close attention to not just what comes out of my mouth but even my thought life.  Especially in regard to being critical - or having a desire to gossip.

What I've begun to do is each time thoughts come into my mind creating a critical spirit toward a situation or person, I ask myself "and what is the log in your eye"...

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Matthew 7:3

This helps me so much! And if I honestly ask this of myself, God is quick to reveal the log...

So as you go through this day that the Lord has given you, be brave enough to stop your critical thoughts by asking Him to reveal your log and be prepared to be much less ready to criticize those around you when you see your own shortcomings!
