Like a beam in the eye

Funny how I didn't notice until the Gospel was proclaimed at Mass that it was "that" Gospel. Jesus pulls no punches. We cannot presume to help our neighbor deal with a splinter while we have a log in our own eye. I told Jesus this was another of his "hard sayings," no matter how right and reasonable it is. He's going to have to take care of my log for me, and give me a new vision!

Perhaps helping a neighbor with his "mote" could be one small stepping stone toward the erosion of one's "beam". D.B.
