Scales, Logs, and Masks…Oh My!
Words matter, even more so when Jesus uses them. In his Sermon on the Mount about the perils of judging others, he uses words such as, ‘judge, speck, log, and hypocrite’. With those words, he paints a picture of what’s really occurring when judgment is used against others. And that picture reveals more about the one judging than it does of the one being judged. But the inverse of that picture tells the story of the Good News that Jesus brings, which is our mission…to set the captives free!
