Take the log out of your own eye first!

"Take the log out of your own eye first, and then you will see clearly enough to take the splinter out of your brother's eye." Mt 6: 5

As a caddy for 9 years, I saw the best and worst of human nature. I was a little judgmental when a member would toss his putter or driver into the air after a bad shot or shout a nasty swear word after missing a key putt, or drill his 7 iron into the fairway after sculling his ball over the green, etc. But I also played golf and I was far from the model example of self-control and etiquette as a kid. I definitely needed to take the log out of my own eye first!
