Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 8th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle C) to help teach children about hypocrisy and that we should not look for faults in others. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Luke 6:39-45, in which Jesus teaches the Parable of the Mote and the Beam.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus teaches about the pitfall of judging others. He tells the Parable of the Mote and the Beam to illustrate how people are quick to judge others while forgetting their own errors. In fact, He calls them hypocrites. Christ wants us to know that judging others is wrong. Only God is perfect, and the closest humanity can ever come to perfection is imitating the Lord. Jesus also warns that each person will be judged in the same way that he or she judges others.
