The Proud, The Humble, The Justified
The paradox of self-righteousness is that, though it appears holy on the surface, it is actually a sin of pride in disguise. Despite the amount of efforts put in and the ‘feel-good factor’, self-righteousness ironically distances a person from God and men. In the eyes of God, better is a humble and penitent sinner, than a self-righteous “saint”. He who humbly puts his trust in Christ’s redemption will be justified, but the proud will be humbled by God.
What is our posture as we approach God today – is it with a humble, repentant heart or one laced with self-righteousness?
