Justification from men....

Luke 16:15
...., Ye are they that justify yourselves in the sight of men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

Often times when I read the Gospel, and listen to what Jesus says to the Pharisees, I see myself. How many times have I tried to justify myself or my actions in the sight of men, not caring wether it went against God? He knows my heart. There is no hiding that from him, as much as I might be able to hide it from men. He sees the real me. The sinner, the lost and filthy soul that can only be cleaned through Christ Jesus. I praise him that there is a "way", a redeemer that shows me I can be clean. He shows me how to care more about the Lord, and being clear before HIM, and not men.

Lord-
I ask that you help me to live your Word in my life, so I may be your example. Lord forgive me of the times where I cared more about justifying myself before men. Help me Lord to be the wife, mother and friend you want me to be. May You receive all the glory in my life!

In Jesus Name
Amen
