The Beam In My Eye

By Rev. Dean Beaty 8/30/09

Luke 6:41-42 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,

but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?Either how canst thou say

to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou

thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out

first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the

mote that is in thy brother's eye.” (KJV)

I’m not sure I understand why other’s faults I see,

Before I see my own as worse and take them Lord to Thee.

Help me Lord to see the beam that’s lodged within my eye,

Before I criticize someone and my neighbor’s mote be cry.

The problems in my own life Lord, I know so very well.

Perhaps that’s why I see them clear and on their faults I dwell.

That’s not a good excuse to gripe and moan or criticize.

And forever look for motes that are in others eyes.

Teach me Lord to show Thy love that they may see Thy grace.

And the thoughts that criticize, within my heart erase.

Help me Lord to use the mirror of Thy own Holy Word.

And not a magnifying glass for that act is absurd.

There is a special peace that comes from God within your soul,

When you’re walking close to Him, not making motes your goal.

Instead take them in prayer to God and let Him work them out.

Remember this; He’s in control and has a lot more clout.
