E mail ~ Judging Others

Luke 6.41-42

I got this idea from certain political leaders who seem to make demands of other countries, when they're a thousand times more guilty themselves. If this were done as a drama, it would involve two characters reading their e mails out from either side of the dais or stage.

The last E mail obviously being read first.

From: Mr Sickas Achip

To: Judge M Ental

Subject: Speck in my eye

Date: 10 Oct 2006 10.26.39-0100

Dear Sir,

For these numerous daily messages,

it's you I have to thank.

But instead of pointing to my speck,

Why not first remove your 'plank'

Dear Sir,

For a while I’ve been requesting

You take the ‘speck’ out of your eye

Perhaps my e mail messages

On your list are not so high.

You seem quite unrepentant

I’m awaiting your reply.

Then I’ll re-open talks with you…

Once you comply.

I think you’re quite defiant,

You think you have a right.

But persisting with a foreign body

in your eye, will spoil your sight.

Pressures I will put on you

Until I get my way

Sanctions I will bring to bear

I WILL have my say.

So come don’t play games with me,

Let’s be friends, you and I,

And take a *%*! tissue to that

sawdust in your eye! (use a hooter instead of swear word)

Luke 6. 41-42

"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, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
