In his statement, Rep. Weiner said, “I have made terrible mistakes”, “I have not been honest”, and also described his actions as “dumb,” “destructive” and “deeply, deeply hurtful.”
While you or I may not have done similar actions, we probably could use some of the same words and/or phrases to describe some of our actions.
As his press conference played on the CNN feed in my office, the following words of Jesus came to mind:
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”
“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone…”
I’m moving on and worrying about my own life…
