I Looked Closer at Your Sin

I looked closer at your sin
And mine looked even worse
I had assumed you as unworthy
When it is I who deserve the curse

The deeper I descended
Into the well of your dark past
The greater God’s light showed
His mercy does outlast

So as I look
Beneath the lashes
To see the splinter in your eye
The reflection in your pupil
Gives me cause to wonder why

Why is my God so merciful
Why is God so kind
I do and think such evil
And He doesn’t Seem to mind

For if God can overlook
My failings faults and selfishness
He can bring deliverance
He can handle anybody’s mess!

“Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier.

Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.”
Luke 6:37‭-‬38 MSG

Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
Luke 6:42 KJV
