As we behold and try to assist in another’s shortcomings we sometimes tend to overlook our own flaws. Our own attitudes of forgiveness can only be revealed and helped by the Lord that loved us in spite our flaws. The beam in our eye is removed by Him so we are able to help another.
There is a log problem when,
You are unable to comprehend,
There is a terrible blockage in your sight;
When, your outlook is not quite right.
Example- the times of anger, believing no one cares,
When you tend to the inner fires, know, there is a log problem there.
What are you to do about it you ask?
Put out the fire, put it out fast.
Forgive the trespass and the short sight of another.
When you do you will discover,
The freedom to again praises sing,
By loving your brother and thus honoring Christ the King.
There are slivers to be tended to in life,
But they must be removed with your eyes on Christ.
Do you have a log problem to be solved?
It is wise when God is asked to be involved.
Ask for His assistance and you will agree,
Things look much better when clearly you are able to see.
Eyes of love and mercy with words that heal,
Break down the log jams to see rightly and again God’s love feel.
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
