“To guard against self-righteousness, the spiritual warrior must practice the discipline of perpetual repentance. I must constantly remind myself that I am part of the problem I am trying to solve.” –Sam Keene
Most of my youth was spent being self-righteous, instead of being broken before God, Who knows my limitations and weaknesses and posturing for image-protection. When self-righteous, a sin I confessed even today, I am not being loving and accepting toward others. And I don’t admit to being part of any problem I am associated with. Every day I must clean out the plaque that forms around my heart through the discipline of confession/repentance, in order to have a smooth flow of circulation of God’s love to others around me.
