Matthew 7:1-5 in New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. (vs. 1-2)
Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? (vs. 3-4)
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye. (vs. 5)


This passage is not typically taught in Workshop Rotation Model churches, so we don't have a lot on it. Why not typical? Because in Rotation we spend 4 to 5 weeks in a row on a single story, and thus, have to prioritize which stories we teach in elementary Sunday School. Therefore, this particular story doesn't often make the final cut.

But, feel free to add your lessons and ideas over in Parables! (Perhaps you are a "non-Rotator" or you are using it for your mid-week or other program.)
