see?

Luke 6 vs 42. How can you say to your brother, 'Brother let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brothers eye. (New International Version)





clearly, you don't see me
as you should. is it the wood?
it's a fleck, just a speck
what the heck? this defect
i suspect, magnified, multiplied,
through some wide-eyed
black-hued, worldview
that you hold...
as your lens

the All-Seeing sees
these hypocrysies
with sinless scrutiny
and injects His perspective.

granting an invitation
under grace, to a place
face to face, eye to eye,
you and i, each must try
to remove from ourselves
the wood, that would
guarantee, you see me
clearly...as you should.

but how to remove myself from the wood, that's the hard part.

"the All-Seeing sees

i love the wording and the truth, how our sin, sometimes unnoticed by us, prevents us from seeing as we should.
