Put The Magnifying Glass Down …

when we judge others, typically we judge them for things we do ourselves. I once read Joyce Meyer describe it like this “we look at ourselves through rose-colored glasses, but we look at everyone else through a magnifying glass.”
we should not makes excuses for our actions yet speak ill of someone else who does the same. bottom line… we should “not concern ourselves with what is wrong with others when we have so much wrong with ourselves.” …

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. (Romans 2:1 NIV)

You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:5 NIV)
