I am really getting this post in under the wire. I have spent the past few days partying it up with family and this is the first chance that I have had to sit down and work on a blog post for today. But the song that I have chosen is not one that should only be listened to on Sunday. (None of them are when you really think about it.)
But this song is one that should be memorized and taken to heart. It's a song about taking "the beam out of thine own eye" so that then we can "see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother's eye." (Matthew 7:5)
Do you know what a "mote" is?
I don't know about you, but I have about a zillion giant beams sticking out of my eyes.
"Now these are the words which Jesus taught his disciples that they should say unto the people.
Judge not unrighteously, that ye be not judged: but judge righteous judgment."
-Matthew 7:1 (with the Joseph Smith Translation)
I have put together a lyric video for today's song because the words are very powerful and will cause you to do some real soul searching. It's a good kind of soul searching and you won't regret doing it. I hope that as you listen to this song and read the words, you will do so with an open heart, asking the Lord, "What can I do better? How can I stop myself from judging others unrighteously and find ways to serve more instead?"
