It’s not my brother or my sister but it’s me, O Lord: standing in the need of prayer. We are so warm in our own self-esteem that we freeze the folks around us. We get so high in our own estimation that we stand isolated on a mountain top of self-righteousness. That is why You came: Lord Jesus: not to save the lecherous but to turn the righteous to repentance And it is me, O Lord. (from Where Freedom is Laughter)

Included in my early reading this morning in the Celtic Daily Prayer,

There are those who are clean in their own eyes but are not washed of their filth. (Proverbs 30:12)
