Morning Meditation: seeking to be a more effective prolife witness

In seeking to be a more effective prolife witness, it came to my attention today, for yet another time in my life, that I must remove the beam from my eye before I can even consider a mote in someone else’s eye. I was reading Proverbs 8: 12 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. 13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.
In our quest in advancing the culture of life, as we seek to impact policy, moving the nation and the world back to God, seeking repentence first for ourselves and then others, I realized once again that it starts in my life first… I must first recognize and hate the evil in me, in my thoughts, my heart and my deeds… Then, once God is allowed to show me my sins, convict my own heart, then, with true repentence, I can look upon others with mercy and compassion. They too may be plaged with pride and arrogance, and now, as I become a trembling example of a life brought low, humbled by God’s presence, God’s grace can shine through me, drawing others to repentence of a life that still needs to embrace the sanctity of life… We must take the beams out of our eyes, so to speak, before we can be humble enough to want to help others be rid of the motes in their eyes. Then, and only then, can we begin to see life more clearly; as pitiful little ones, needing ABBA CREATOR to help us grow… Peace and love to all! Alveda
