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.

St. Augustine

I've been reading St. Augustine's Confessions for one of my classes, and I have discovered what a wonderful book it is (at least up till Book X, I didn't read beyond that). If you have not read it, you need to read it ASAP. It is fairly lengthy, but it is clear and understandable. It truly is amazing how God works in us and brings us to Himself, and this is a good story with a clear before and after pictures. And while I'm on the subject, I'll give you a good quote by St. Augustine.

"For Thou hast commanded that an irregulated should be its own punishment." ~St. Augustine
