The Spec And Log Principle
UNFORGIVENESS is put in perspective in the Spec and Log principle of Matt 7:3, “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? (NKJ) Unforgiveness is the log which is bigger than the sin (spec) we cannot forgive in someone else. God asks us which is worse, someone’s sin or our unforgiveness of their sin? The log is a vivid picture of how blinding unforgiveness can be. It keeps us from seeing that if we build a prison for someone, we have to stand guard over it. We are locking ourselves in, building limitations for our own life. For example, if we don’t forgive someone for rejecting us, we will become blinded by a resident fear of rejection.
