A Parable About Integrity

 

Luke 6:39-42

 

If you have a log in your eye, you are

Not the guy to remove another’s speck.

 

Credibility needs integrity.

Purity is an opportunity.

Salvation is a possibility.

 

George Bernard Shaw said, “All great truths begin

As blasphemy.”  And Young Frankenstein said,

“Destiny, no escaping that for me.”

 

The Navarre Bible notes are instructive.

Saint Theophilus of Antioch, loved

By God, said, “Show me that the eyes of your

Mind see and that the ears of your heart hear.”

 

After a conflict resolution, Chip

Hilton’s heart sang with a great confidence.
