Last week I posted a video showing a pastor of a church chastise his congregants publicly and by name. He sounded arrogant, self-righteous, and not very loving. It was not pretty.
I wanted “feedback” from you because I personally thought it was horrible.
This morning, I watched that video again and found myself getting indignant again.
And then, God spoke to my heart.
I did EXACTLY THE SAME THING HE DID. I chastised him publicly and by name. I sounded arrogant, self-righteous, and not very loving. It was not pretty.
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.
I have removed the video.
I ask for your forgiveness, just as I have asked the Father’s.
