There is a part of me, somewhere down deep and hidden, that still thinks I should have better than others. Part of me believes I am better, superior, more intelligent than my brothers and sisters all around me.

I am a foolish, selfish, and prideful person.

How can this cancer exist within me, when I claim to follow a God who loves indiscriminately. This evil cannot coexist with the perfect love of God. To become like Jesus, I must forsake my self, which is full of sinful pride.

Lord, have mercy on me. Purify me and mold me in the image of Your Son, that I may learn to love without preference – lavishly and unselfishly – as Jesus did.
