Don’t look down on people because in your estimation you are more righteous than they are. It is impossible to have water that is a little dirty.

Water is either pure or impure. Can you imagine a cup of water with just a little impurity laughing at a bucket of muddy water because it is undrinkable? They are both undrinkable!

Humans are water and our sins have made us impure. The bottom line is that we are all undrinkable!

As the Scriptures says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”  -Romans 3:23. It doesn’t matter how short you came if you do not make the grade. Don’t look down at people.

Sometimes the muddiest water is even better than the one that looks pure but isn’t for the simple reason that its need for purification is apparent while the other can stay a lifetime without knowing that it’s impure!

None of us is made righteous by our acts. As 2 Corinthians 5:21 teaches, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”.
