Luke 6:39-48

“Can a blind man lead a blind man?  Will they not both fall into a pit?” (v39).  Much of Jesus’ teaching about our behavior concerned the two principles of humility and integrity.  If we constantly focus on others’ faults, we are usually ignoring our own; humility reminds us that we too are “blind.”  Integrity means that our behavior matches our words; throwing around Jesus’ name doesn’t mean anything if we don’t obey Him (v46).  Jesus said that a tree is known “by its fruit” (v44).
“He is like a man building a house …” (v48).  In a world of uncertainty and deception, we can build our lives on the strong foundation of knowing and obeying Jesus.
