3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye

I am imperfect because i am a human
Last Saturday, we had egg tart making session in church. While we were all moulding that flour in the egg tart holder, B said his eff tart mould was uneven, after all the finger pressing of flour onto the mould.
I said, that's the essence of hand made. Imperfection, unevenness show the trade mark of hand made. We are not machine. so every egg tart can't be the same. Just like hand made cookies, all uneven shape, yet everyone buys them.
After my conversation with him, my words echoed in my head these few days.
We are all human, errors and flaw are allowed, although we should strive to avoide those that is avoidable. The important reminder here is how all of us react to others' imperfection and our own. Do we shout on top of our voice, blaming others' for their flaw, as if we are perfet ourselves? It's just so obvious to do the obvious, to see the obvious flaw in others and be quick to point at it !
Let us always bear the word of God in bible.
1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.photo album
