Get That Mote Out

I am caused to reflect upon the Saviors teaching about looking inwardly. He taught:

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" (Matthew 7:3-5)

We all have weaknesses. I am guilty of judging others and placing expectations upon others. It is not within my power to do such. Who am I to judge another. I'm grateful I can repent and look inwardly. I feel impressed to proclaim that we all should pray to discover the beam that is  within our own eye. I know that as I have strived to look inwardly it shows outwardly in the way that I treat and think of others.


  1. Thank you for that reminder. I am grateful too for the Atonement. Jesus Christ is the Great Healer!

  2. I was reading that chapter in 3 Nephi last week and it was like a slap in the face. I've definitely been guilty of judging others, but I'm working on it and trying to be a little better every day. I am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the ability it gives us to improve and be better. Thanks Elder Mahrt!
