It’s so funny how generally clueless we humans are about a great many things.
Topping the list? Awareness of our own failings and imperfections. I don’t mean that huge zit on the front of my chin. Sadly I can see that as well as the rest of the world.
I am talking about the big stuff...arrogance, ignorance, judgment, cruelty and apathy et al. #WeAllAreGuiltyAtTimes
Just a little note to self —and anyone else who wants to join me—to try harder.
Ps 95:8 If today you hear his voice,harden not your hearts. Gospel Lk 18:9-14 Jesus addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else.“Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector. The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself, ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity -- greedy, dishonest, adulterous — or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’ But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, 'O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’ I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
