The pot/kettle idiom means that you should not disparage another for the same behavior that you exhibit.

A similar idiom is "those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones". That means "if you throw stones at others, you should expect others to throw stones at you." If one lived in a house made of glass, the return fire could be costly.
