There are knotholes in my planks

 “…first take the plank out of your eye,

and then you will see clearly to

remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”    

 Luke 7:47-48

     I’m the first to admit that I have planks in my eyes while others have  specks, and yet, I’m still able to find knotholes through which I look at others.    It is so easy to find the faults in others.  ‘Why does she do that?’  ‘How could he do that?’  How many times in my day do I ask myself questions such as these?  

I think it’s time to begin to plug-up the knotholes and then

start working on removing the planks.

  1. And it would seem that looking through the knotholes would have a way of distorting our vision, not allowing us to see clearly through. I like your idea of removing the planks completely and removing all obstacles to our vision.

  2. Thanks for stopping at my blog. I love what you have to say about planks. I’ve got my own, and now that you mention it I have knotholes too. Something to work on for sure!

  3. Andie, your posts are always so inspirational, thanks. 🙂 I agree that removing planks first is always best, in order to see the other a little more clearly and mercifully. God is patient with us and our mistakes, so it is good for us to be tolerant of others. I believe this should be done with boundaries, without making excuses for sins or allowing others to hurt us.
