Remove the plank

We may disagree on some things, but I do pray that God will give us both the wisdom we need to be successful in all that we do. I also pray that God would help us understand ourselves better. Most of the time, the problems we have in life aren't caused by others, they are actually created by what's within us. It has more to do with how we see ourselves and the world than the actual events that happen to us. Our perspective is more powerful than our reality. I believe that Jesus was teaching this in Matthew 7:3 when He discussed removing the plank from our own eye before trying to remove the spec of saw dust from our brothers eye. It's possible to not even realize that the problem actually lies within our own heart. We humans have a tendency to blame others when it really has more to do with our own faulty perspective. When we change our perspective, humble ourselves and quit judging others, this is when we can truly grow. It's not as much about what happens to us, but how we see it. Humbleness is the first step in clearing our own eye. When we are humble, we are able to see our own sin and need for God's grace. When we are humble, we remove our judgemental glasses and are able to see others through the eyes of grace and love also.
