Carpenter Jesus Knows 91

Judge Not

Splinter of wood in a fingerBe sure that you have a living faith in a living Lord before you try to tell someone else about it! The teacher says in Luke 6.40, "No pupil is greater than his teacher, but every pupil when he has completed his training, will be like his teacher." Be sure that you are not filled with pride and are not doing it for your own benefit! Strive to be a disciple like your teacher.✞

Teacher's Splinter

As a carpenter, Jesus, certainly knew how painful a splinter in the eye was, the pain and how it made the eyes water so that you could hardly see. In such a predicament, how on earth could you expect to pick a tiny speck of the same material out of someone else's eye. The carpenter as recorded in Luke 6.41-42 knows all about removing the teacher's splinters, if we will only let him! We read, "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
