word for today


A tiny speck in the eye can cause the fiercest irritation. In the right spot, that tiny particle captures all the attention, even in a storm. Jesus used the comparison of a speck and a log in His Sermon on the Mount in the New Testament of the Bible. He said that we are hypocrites when we attempt to remove the speck (some sort of bad behavior) from someone’s eye while a log lays in ours. Check your own baby blues before using your medical-grade tweezers on someone else. (“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:5; Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? Romans 2:3)
