Some People’s Lives

Reflective Reading

“Christians don’t go to church to express how great we are, but rather how small.  We don’t go because we’re ‘good,’ ‘nice,’ ‘decent’ people who want to know what good, nice and decent people we are.  We go to admit our dependence and need.  We go because it’s the last place on earth (except the therapist’s office) where it’s socially acceptable to cry in public, or to say out loud that we’re sinners in need of mercy, or broken in need of healing.…I kneel, not because I’m humble, but because I’m proud.  I pray, not because I have all the answers, but because I’m seeking them.”

“The Lord has done good things for me – Holy is His name.”
