Quit keeping score altogether and surrender ourselves with our sinfulness to God who sees neither the score nor the scorekeeper but only his child redeemed by Christ.

Thomas Merton

I remember how I would compare myself to everyone around me. At least I don’t do that! I surely pray more than him! I was at church, where was she?

Then I found myself at the bottom of an abyss of my making. Years upon years of digging my own grave. And from the bottom of this pit I understood. I am the greatest of sinners. For everyone else there is a reason that is understandable. They were bearing a heavy burden. They were trying.

For me. I just wanted my sin. And I am without an excuse.
