"There are those who are clean in their own eyes but are not washed of their filth." ESV
It is so easy to see ourselves as clean, doing really well as good Christian folks, when we compare ourselves to others whether Christian or not. Unfortunately for us, God is not holding us accountable for how we compare to other humans. We are accountable to be like Christ. When we compare ourselves to Him, we don't look clean at all, do we?
Heavenly Father, forgive us for looking at others and comparing how much better we are than they are. Help us remember that our standard for Christian living is Jesus Christ and the way He showed us how to live in this world. Give us spiritual insight to shed off the pride we have in ourselves. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
