Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, while judging ourselves by our best intentions. (George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States)

Sometimes, it seems as if we have a blind eye when it comes to evaluating ourselves. We criticize others harshly, ignoring their strengths and emphasizing their weaknesses. At the same time, we tend to exaggerate our strengths and overlook our faults. The next time you’re tempted to judge someone, remember this thought.

First take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:5)
