Reflecting on my need of grace this morning. How can one so desperate as I; fall so quickly into smug self-righteousness & pride?#fallen
Riding an emotional roller coaster all week - at first tending to take credit for God's work in and through me, then feeling smugly superior at having avoided sins I am not tempted by.
Strange circumstances have me considering the brevity of life and the possibility of suddenly finding myself kneeling in the presence of Holiness.
I need a righteousness that is not of my own making.
No question I produce "filthy rags" in abundance, works tainted by pride and selfish motivation. There is no salvation in them at all!
God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.
