My Powerful Fear!

Those who want to discover the mystery of iniquity in others or in themselves must check carefully. For satan has his wiles and devices, which we shouldn’t ignore. And the heart is deceitful above all things. So, take care to be very strict when you examine yours! (Matthew Henry)

It is very simple to become a sin hunter in others  But, take undue care!

Charles Spurgeon reflected the sins that a man most finds in another are the very sins he shelters most in himself.

By the grace of God I am a Christian man, but by my actions a great sinner... (anon)

Pride is the canopy of sin, blinding those ignorant to their heart but raucous to the sins of others.

Do not judge... for in the same way you judge others, you will be judged... the measure you use, will be measured to you. (Matthew 7:1-2)

It is a powerful fear of mine that the log in my own eye is in fact a forest.
