LumberDiva Originally uploaded by alex itin . These verses have been asserting themselves into my brain for the past several weeks. Not only that, I have heard the verses themselves quoted or the intention behind them espoused in various places. I, therefore, share them with you. For your reading enjoyment, Matthew 7:3-5 : 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? 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? 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.
