The situation is serious, as shown by the increasing abnormal weather events. Temporary flood barriers gave way at Ironbridge, and we should spare a thought for thousands whose homes have been devastated, and for many farmers unable to work the land.
Jesus talked about those looking at a speck in someone else's eye without realising they had a plank in their own. His exaggeration makes the point powerfully. We can too easily pontificate without accepting responsibility for our own actions. I found the Lent group really challenged my outlook.
