Bible: Luke 6:39-49

6:39 He also told them a parable: “Someone who is blind cannot lead another who is blind, can he? 1  Won’t they both fall 2  into a pit? 6:40 A disciple 3  is not greater than 4  his teacher, but everyone when fully trained will be like his teacher. 6:41 Why 5  do you see the speck 6  in your brother’s eye, but fail to see 7  the beam of wood 8  in your own? 6:42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck from your eye,’ while you yourself don’t see the beam in your own? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

6:43For 9  no good tree bears bad 10  fruit, nor again 11  does a bad tree bear good fruit, 6:44 for each tree is known 12  by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered 13  from thorns, nor are grapes picked 14  from brambles. 15  6:45 The good person out of the good treasury of his 16  heart 17  produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasury 18  produces evil, for his mouth speaks 19  from what fills 20  his heart.

6:46Why 21  do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ 22  and don’t do what I tell you? 23 

6:47Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and puts them into practice 24  – I will show you what he is like: 6:48 He is like a man 25  building a house, who dug down deep, 26  and laid the foundation on bedrock. When 27  a flood came, the river 28  burst against that house but 29  could not shake it, because it had been well built. 30  6:49 But the person who hears and does not put my words into practice 31  is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When 32  the river burst against that house, 33  it collapsed immediately, and was utterly destroyed! 34
