Luke 6:41-43 The Passion Translation (TPT)

41 Why do you focus on the flaw in someone else’s life and fail to notice the glaring flaws of your own life?[a] 42 How could you say to your friend, ‘Here, let me show you where you’re wrong,’ when you are guilty of even more than he is? You are overly critical, splitting hairs and being a hypocrite! You must acknowledge your own blind spots and deal with them before you will be able to deal with the blind spot of your friend.”[b]

The Fruit of Your Life

43 “You’ll never find choice fruit hanging on a bad, unhealthy tree. And rotten fruit doesn’t hang on a good, healthy tree.

Footnotes:

  1. Luke 6:41 Or “Why do you see a speck in your brother’s eye but fail to see the beam of wood sticking out of your own eye?”
  2. Luke 6:42 Or “You hypocrite, why don’t you first remove the beam sticking out of your own eye? Then you can see clearly to remove the small speck out of your brother’s eye.” Jesus is teaching that our blind spots prevent us from accurately evaluating the needs of others.
