There once was a lady who had some time to kill while waiting at an airport. She brought a cup of coffee and a package of cookies. She sits at a table where another man is sitting. The stranger reached and took one of her cookies and ate it. The woman couldn’t believe what this stranger was doing. Without causing a scene she takes a cookie. A minute or so passes and the stranger takes another cookie. The woman then reaches and takes the two remaining cookies and eats them. The stranger then leaves the table.

The woman hears the call to load her plane and as she reaches for her ticket in her purse she finds an unopened pack of cookies. The very one she has just purchased and failed to open.

Everyone makes mistakes, so let’s be careful that we examine ourselves first before pointing the finger.

Mt 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

 Mt 7:4 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?

 Mt 7:5 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.
