Thank You for creating me such a great
example of a bad example. Bad example of a Jesus-dependent. And growing me in self-awareness so I could see the real me, and for convicting me of my pride in disliking the real me, so I could begin to accept, even enjoy, the real me, so I could begin to accept, even enjoy, others, especially jerks, adversaries, and even enemies, including the politically self-righteous.
Thank You for my hungry-needy flesh that LOVES spotting self-righteousness in others, and then feeling superior to them. Thank You that when You enable me to see the real me, and the real You, I have a sense of having been forgiven much, so I’m able to love much — others, myself, You, and Your genius plan for all of us.
