How to Deal with the Sins of Others (Matthew 7:1-5)


1. How have you heard 7:1 misused? Why do you think even some Christians think we should not address the sin we see in another Christian?

2. What is the point of Jesus calling our sin a log and other’s sin a speck (cf. 1 Timothy 1:15)? How often do you take the log out of your own eye when you see the speck of sin in others? How would this impact the way you deal with the sin of others if you did this anytime you were bothered by their sin?

3. What bad experiences have you had of someone addressing your sin? What good experiences have you had? How will this text change the way you address the sins of others?

4. What did you find most helpful from the sermon text and/or the sermon on the text?
