A Little Testy

I suppose you are the best kind of Christian.
You are never irritated by another car cutting you off in traffic.
You never exceed the speed limit.
You stand in a long grocery line without one word of complaint.
You give whole-heartedly when a friend is in need.
You share what you have without complaint.
You tithe your income, just as God asked.
You never yell at your children.
You treat your parents with respect and dignity, no matter how they raised you.
You never raise a fuss at work.
Ah, yes. You are a saint beyond compare. I don’t know you and possibly you don’t know yourself. Let’s be real. We all slip from time to time.
But the Good News is this. We don’t have to stay in the doldrums of shame and self-hate. Here is the Good News!
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
