state. The ink-blots are not pictures of anything. They are simply black splattered on white paper. How someone perceives the ink says something about who they are. In the same way, the simple act of judging someone else, says more about who we are than it does about them. In judging others, we are trying to cover our own weaknesses. We have a deficiency, so rather than trying to correct it, we point out others weaknesses so that ours won't look so bad.
Jesus said "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
"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, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 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."
The truth is that we all have struggles and problems in our life. We need to focus on letting God heal and work in our own lives. From James' church to the churches of today, we need to apply this message and learn to love others. Fixing people is God's job. If we are honest, we will see that He still has plenty of work to do on us.
