Gospel for the Monday of the 12th Week in Ordinary Time Cycle 1

Matthew 7:1-5

Summary: Jesus warns against judging others and urges us to address our own faults before criticizing others.

Remove Your Own Plank

Jesus said to his disciples: “Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you. Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye?

How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove that splinter from your eye,’ while the wooden beam is in your eye? You hypocrite, remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.”
