We talk the talk and don’t walk the walk.
We stay busy. We please ourselves. We get entertained.
We gossip. We backbite. We criticize. We point fingers. We lie.
We take sides.
We are self-righteous. We are prideful.
We are lazy. We make ourselves known.
We fight. We divide. We spit in Jesus’ face.
We want things our way.
We wrap ourselves in self-pity. We weigh ourselves down with troubles of this world.
We weigh ourselves down with these games.
We withhold ourselves from serving, our resources from giving, our talents from blessing.
Lord, forgive us. Sometimes we know not what we do. Sometimes we do. Forgive us.
