09/10/1010 – Plank and Splinter

Dia dhuit,

Our LORD today speaks about judging others.He highlights how we can observe a splinter in somebody’s eye but fail to notice a plank in our own eye.This can often be down to lack of awareness of our own faults and lack of humility.Sometimes the thing that annoys us most about somebody tells us a lot about ourselves.When we feel ourselves judging others, Jesus wants us to stop and take a look in the mirror first.Who am I to judge anyone else?We simply don’t know what’s going on inside a person, their motives etc.We barely know what’s going on inside ourselves.Only God can see the heart.He is the perfect judge.

God bless you,
Fr Marius
