July 26: Judgment

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 7:1-5

On this date in 2011, a 19-inning, six-hour-and-thirty-nine minute game between the Pirates and the Braves at Turner Field ended in a 4-3 Atlanta victory when home plate umpire Jerry Meals ruled that Pirate catcher Michael McKenry had missed the tag as Julio Lugo lunged toward home. Replays, however, clearly showed McKenry tagging Lugo out three feet in front of home plate.

Jesus’ words today for us are from the Sermon on the Mount, and they are a warning against judging others. Often, we are guilty of seeing others’ faults while we fail to see our own. We will point out someone’s shortcomings while ignoring our own flaws. Jesus calls that kind of behavior hypocritical. We must examine ourselves first, cleaning up our own lives and their faults before we move on to the lives of others. Jesus wants us to take a good hard look at ourselves. Instead of focusing on the specks we might see in other’s eyes, we need to see the planks that poke from our own eyes and clean up our own lives.

  1. When have we been guilty of looking for specks in others eyes?

  2. Why is it so hard to see our own faults?

  3. May we all ask God today to help us see the planks in our lives.

Sometimes, even the best umpires miss a call. Let’s strive to make the right call when it comes to the faults in our lives.
