SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS: REFLECTION BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS IS ONE OF THE SPIRITUAL ILL OF BELIEVERS.
WHEN ONE REACH AN APEX OF HIS SPIRITUALITY, ONE MAY THINK
OF BEING BETTER THAN OTHERS.

SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS HAD BEEN NOT FAVORED BY THE LORD IN
HIS GOSPEL.  JESUS PREFERRED THE SINNER WITH A CONTRITE
HEART, WHO DID NOT EVEN RAISE HIS EYES TO HEAVEN.  IT IS
OBVIOUS THAT THE PHARISEE WHO DENOUNCED HIS NEIGHBOR
WAS NOT SEEN IN GOOD LIGHT.

IT IS ALRIGHT TO FOLLOW GOD'S COMMANDS; ON THE OTHER HAND,
IF ONE DOES NOT SEEK THE GRACE OF GOD BUT RELY ON HIS OWN
SELF-SUFFICIENCY, THAT'S WHERE THE PROBLEM LIES.

LET US PRAY TO THE LORD THAT HE WILL GIVE US GRACE NOT TO
DENOUNCE THE SINNERS, FOR THEY TOO AFTER CONTRITE REPENTANCE
ARE TRULY WELCOME IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!
