WORD & POWER for TODAY
CARE ALSO FOR YOURSELF THIS YEAR
“And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?” Matthew 7:3 NKJV
As much as Christianity is almost tantamount to hospitality, Jesus wants us to draw the line, between efficiency and eye-service!
Hypocrisy is eye-service! Doing what you want people to see. Whereas, you are dying in silence! Don’t do such evil to yourself this year. A speck is just like dust from the wood, while a plank is a piece of wood that is almost the same length as a tree. Jesus is saying; take out time to solve that bigger problem in your life, before volunteering yourself to take tiny issues out of other people’s lives. Because, you cannot see well! You can’t be efficient that way! “Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:5 NKJV.
I love Jesus, because He is not a religious leader! He is Life!! It is in religion that people hide their problems, basically because of other people’s opinions. But, Jesus cares more about human lives, than about “what-other-people-will-say”. And to those who like to criticize other Believers and Preachers. Please, care more about yourself this year. Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling (Philip 2:12)! Be sure of your own entrance into Heaven before guiding others to it!! Love your life, be sure that you are well; spiritually and physically. Then, volunteer to serve others. You are also very important!
