That’s an easy ting to say to a moral teacher: “Be more concerned about the board in your own eye.” I often think that. In other words: do not call me to repentance for my faults and sins.

I think I should maybe make it clear that my comment was not based off of that reason.
Getting older, I am finding it easier to admit faults and sins, even to be told by hypocrites that I have them. No problem there. It’s rather helpful, whomever God has to do it. I am reminded of the Biblical account of Shimei, the son of Gera, who cursed and cast stones upon king David and his company. I will never forget David’s response. It was the right attitude to have. God can use anyone to correct us, if we need correcting, even a hypocrite.

No man is my moral teacher. God is.
