We so often open our mouths to speak.
And we pray:
It can become very easy to point out other people’s flaws and shortcomings, instead of focusing on the areas in our lives that require improvement. Jesus spoke against this behavior, adamantly. As Christians, we aren’t to be self-righteous, seeking to point out other people’s mistakes and becoming blind to our own. We are to be humble – even when correcting people – and realize that just as someone has made a mistake, we are very capable of doing the same thing.
And we round it out with another word of prayer…
Dear God, I pray that I will never become the type of person who takes delight in pointing out people’s flaws. LORD cleanse me now with The blood of Jesus which was shed for me. I know that I have my own issues that I need to deal with and I will never compare my problems with someone else’s for 8 understand not exactly where they have been. I pray that I may be loving in times where I need to correct someone, always remembering that no one is perfect and we are all overcoming issues in our lives. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
