Why the name "bLog in Your Own Eye"?

Matthew 7:3 - 5 "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye."

We should all endeavor to think rightly about ourselves and graciously about one another. We all have specks and logs in our eyes.

Locked In...

I went to my first ever lock-in with my Youth Group on Friday night/Saturday morning. It was pretty awesome, so I'll just go through all that happened. :)
First,
at about 7pm, we started at a pizza restaurant called "CiCi's", which was already crowded before the 20-something people from youth group got there.... We had an interesting assortment of pizza, e.g. barbecue-ish pizza, macaroni and cheese pizza, and some normal pizza. Plus, the manager there was really nice to give us all free sodas, which helped me to stay awake. After we spent about an hour-and-a-half there, we packed up, and headed across town to Frankie's Fun Park (like a Blackbeard's Cove, if you don't know what that is, oh well). There, we had little cards with $5 worth of arcade money, and a pass to do 5 activities. I spent all of my arcade money and got a cool orange click-pen. :) I also did mini-golf once, and the Go-Carts twice. The go-carts were AWESOME!!!!! :-D After that, around 11:30-ish, we headed back across town to Velocity Sports Performance, which is like a gym on steroids. :) It had about 40-yards of football field (indoors), a basketball/volleyball/dodgeball court a miniature track, and a little weight lifting place that was off-limits. PLUS, we had snack galore. I hit the volleyball for a little while, played a little football (if catching and throwing counts as football...) and then played an actual volleyball game which was awesome. At about 4am(Saturday), I personally was getting a little tired, but I stayed up, and played Taboo with some friends. Now, if you've never played Tabbo at 4 in the morning, you should try it, it's HILARIOUS!!!! Around 5:30-ish, we started Prince Caspian (the movie), which I was unfortunately reminded how much I disliked it. After too much of that, about 7am, my dad and I headed home, and once I arrived, took a shower, and hopped in bed, and slept till 2:30pm. :) That was my Friday/Saturday, then today, (Sunday), I went to a play of "To Kill A Mockingbird", which was really good. Now, I sit here typing away, when I should be in bed, but I'm not, and I just ate some Jalapeno/Chedar chips, which kinda made my stomach hurt, so, I guess I'll post later. :)
