The Inner Vessel Shall Be Cleansed First

Captain Moroni explains the order in which God works with individuals and groups of people.

“…God has said that the inward vessel shall be cleansed first, and then shall the outer vessel be cleansed also.” (Alma 60:23)


-How does this truth relate to Christ’s teaching that one should first remove the beam from his or her eye before trying to remove the mote that is in another’s eye? (Matthew 7:3-5)
