Jesus used the analogy of a speck of sawdust and a plank of wood to explain how we must not judge others.  If we judge someone else and take the sawdust from our brother’s eye, shouldn’t we first remove the plank of wood from our own eye?

Read the story – Matthew 7:1-5

“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.
