Carpenter Jesus Knows

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! Jesus said in Luke 6.40, "The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their 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. He had experienced the pain and how it made the eyes water so that he 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 knew all about removing the teacher splinter, 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."
