jesus asked, Can the blind lead the blind?
Judge not so that you will not be judged. The judgments that you make will be the same judgments by which you are judged.
Whatever judgment you measure out will be the same judgment you receive. Do not condemn others and you will not be condemned. Be merciful and you will receive mercy.
Give and it will be given to you; all that you need, pressed down, shaken together, running over. For whatever measuring cup you use to give to others, the same measuring cup will be used to give to you.
Jesus then told his disciples a parable:
He asked them, Can the blind lead the blind? Won’t they both fall into a pit? The disciple is not greater than his teacher.
And why are you looking at the small speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and not considering the huge timber beam that is in your own eye?
How can you be of any help removing the speck from your brother’s eye when you have a beam in your own eye? You hypocrite, remove the beam from your own eye so that you can see clearly to pick the speck out of your brothers eye.
Do not give things that are holy to vicious dogs, and do not cast your pearls before wild boars, for they will just trample them under feet and then turn on you to do you harm.
