Matthew 7:3-5 (NIV) 3 "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? 4 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? 5 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.
A older preacher once said that a good many of his congregation would be lost because they were too generous. He saw that the people looked rather surprised; so he said—"Perhaps you think I have made a mistake, and that I ought to have said you will be lost because you are not generous enough. That is not so; I meant just what I said. You give away too many sermons. You hear them, as it were, for other people." There are a good many who listen for those behind them; they say the message is very good for neighbour So-and-so; and they pass it over their shoulders, till it gets clear out of the door. D. L. Moody (Anecdotes, Incidents and Illustrations)
