My Thoughts on Today's Bible Readings

What did Jesus mean when he talked about logs and splinters in eyes? These pieces of wood are faults in our thinking and perception of the world. These faults make people blind to God's message and goodness. Such people are in need of a physician who can give them the kind of vision and clarity for overcoming the blindspots in their lives. Guess who is the physician I'm talking about?
A true disciple of Christ is one who listens to the voice of his/her Master and who submits to the skillful help of the Divine Physician for treating and removing the cancer of sin in his/her life. If we want to be guides and teachers for others, then we need clear vision, both spiritual and moral vision, and a map that shows us the right destination for our life's journey. If our ultimate destination is heaven, then there is only one way to get there and that way is through the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the cross of Christ sin is pardoned and the sinner is made whole, darkness and corruption give way to light and truth, death is defeated and new life restored. The cross of Christ frees us from condemnation and guilt and shows us the way of perfect love.
