Beam Questions vs Mote Questions

Jesus is a Carpenter – a Builder

A carpenter knows that a house is constructed with beams. The beams hold a house together.

Motes are specks of wood like sawdust that you sweep up after the house is built.

Matthew 7:3-5

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

What did Jesus mean here?

If you are rebellious against the basic laws, commandments, and ordinances – the structural beams that build a family, a congregation, and the kingdom of God together – you don’t get to nitpick the perspectives or personality traits of those who are building or rebuilding families, congregations, and the kingdom of God on the laws, commandments, and ordinances of God.

Elijah is calling a nation back to the laws of YAHUAH – but you say he’s mean. Do you know how many lives he’s saving?

John the Baptist is preparing the way for Jesus the Messiah, by calling every segment of society to repent – but you say his branding is not friendly enough. He could dress better right? Maybe he would offend less people.

Paul the Apostle is bringing the gospel of the Kingdom to entire new languages and nations of people – but you say his speaking skills are weak. I guess he’s not talented enough to be a leader. Do you know how hard it is to lead people forward and how easy it is to lead them backwards?

Meanwhile your rebellion is against the very laws, commandments, and ordinances that keep families, congregations, and the kingdom of God together.

Manipulators will always have an excuse not to obey, repent, and change.

Before you point out the SPECKS in your brother’s perspective, ask yourself these BEAM questions:

Do you guard and protect all 10 Commandments aka the Law of Liberty?

Are you submissive to the order and authority in your family?

Are you submissive to Jesus’ New Covenant Commandments and Ordinances in your Congregation?

Are you building what Jesus the Carpenter and Chief Apostle is building (Disciples, Families, Congregations) or are you building your own conceits (ideas)?

Did your brother get sawdust in his eye from trying to saw off your beams?

Can you remove your beams, then use your beams to help your brother finish building the house… and then help him sweep up & wash away the sawdust from his eye?
