Take our own advice before giving it


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times It’s always easy to give advice to others, but it is hard for us to take the advice we so freely give to others, act accordingly, and set the example that would not only prove the advice we gave is wise, but also that we are wise enough to live by it. The truth is that if you are going to talk the talk you must also walk the accompanying walk, because to do otherwise is the very essence of hypocrisy. Christ Himself pointed this out when he spoke of those who criticize others for having the mote of sin in their eye while ignoring the log they have in their own. Before we tell others that they need to clean up their act, we should ask ourselves whether our own lives are clean enough to allow us to do so or whether we’re the ones in need of a good scrubbing.
