Hatred and Resentment Chief Obstacles

Today it has been brought to my attention that the above can certainly burden one while darkening thoughts.  It is so seductive to entertain ugly thoughts but then where does it leave us?  Right then, right there Christ, Truth is and all we need to do is question this thought to see if that is what God is seeing.  Luke 6:42 states, ” Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pullout the mote that is in the brother’s eye.”  We can surely not have dark thoughts and still have room for the birth of the Christ in our thinking.  They cannot co-exist.

This season my focus will be on the Christ!

Removing the Beam from my Eye

This morning as I glanced on Facebook, I saw, still another political post from a friend. This always annoys me, but I continue to look and judge!  Entertaining that type of judgment keeps me from joy if I do not correct my focus, and I was led to Luke 6:42 where it reads, “Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”

It then occurred to me that I certainly did not have to read it!
