The Log in My Eye by Joyce Meyer - posted May 31 Wednesday

You hypocrite, first get the beam of timber out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the tiny particle out of your brother’s eye. 
—Matthew 7:5
Loving people unconditionally is the greatest gift we can give them (and ourselves). I have learned that one of the secrets to my own personal peace is to let people be who God made them to be, rather than try to make people be who I would like them to be. I do my best to enjoy their strengths and be merciful toward their weaknesses because I have plenty of my own. I don’t need to try to take the speck out of someone else’s eye while I have a telephone pole in my own.
Make a decision not to look at—or for—flaws. We all have them! But you don’t have to focus on them.
Power Thought: God is merciful to me with my weaknesses, and I am merciful toward the weaknesses of others.
