THE POT OR THE KETTLE

The pot calling the kettle black is a common phrase throughout our culture. Its meaning, however, escapes many of us who sometimes use it to apply to others’ need for self examination.

Both the pot and the kettle are inanimate objects without any feeling or compassion. And much of the time, our antics, tirades or rants toward others of another opinion, belief, ideology, race or creed, are only expressions or demonstrations of our own inability to feel, care, or have unconditional, positive regard toward others.

Let’s face it! Both of them, the kettle and the pot are black . . . like, all of us are sinners.
