The Beam and the Mote

When we criticize others, we ought to first examine our own lack of perfection. A person of integrity is mindful of hypocrisy and double standards. There is a European saying, “Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.Jesus also warned about the need of self-awareness. He said, “You hypocrite! First, remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.”(Matthew 7: 5)
