“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 7:3

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Why do you see the speck in your neighbour’s eye,

but do not notice the log in your own eye?”

.

– Matthew 7:3 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

A good verse to live by.

Maybe we should print this verse

and put it where we can see it every day!

.

When we think we’ve spotted a defect in others,

rather than focus on that possible defect

we should use the opportunity to look at ourselves.

.

We need to stop, often, and look inwardly.

How do others see us?

Most importantly,

what does God, who sees everything,

see in us that does not please Him?

.

But we must beware,

for if we see nothing wrong with ourselves,

then we really do have a big problem.

.

QUOTE…

.

"To criticize, to destroy, is not difficult;

any unskilled labourer knows how to drive his pick

into the noble and finely-hewn stone of a cathedral.

To construct: that is what requires the skill of a master"

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Search me, O God, so that I may see the truth about myself,

and then change me. For this I pray.
