A Proverb on Crows and Critique

A crow said to another crow, “Your face is black.”

Local Oral Tradition

Or as we say in English, the pot calls the kettle black. Before judging others we must take care that we ourselves don’t exhibit that same issue. Especially if that issue is even worse in our own lives. As Matthew 7:3 says, Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

After we have dealt with the sin in our own lives, then we will be in a position to judge with right judgement (John 7:24) – and equipped to provide truly helpful critique.
