For me
« on: November 29, 2009, 08:05:29 PM »
Recently I've realised that I'm becoming more and more bossy and try to impose my point of view to the others. I also say people what they should do despite lacking basics of the needed knowledge to advise others. I do that even if I am not sure whether I'm true and, what is expectable, I often fail.

Please pray for me that I inhibit that actions. I know that I act very wrongly but the temptation is very strong.

I am guilty of this, too.

Lord, have mercy!


Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I will pray for you, but first let me remove the plank from my own eye.
