Righteous or self righteous?

I tead these words today in Psalm 25:

The Lord is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray.”

There is all the difference in the world between self-righteousness and true righteousness. Self-righteousness smells of pride and looks down on people who are judged not to have  made the grade in some way. True righteousness results in wanting to help people find God’s path no matter how far they have slipped from it.

As Sunday comes around, I pray that where Christians gather together the helpful, kind, compassionate and true righteousness of God will fill the atmosphere; that those who feel they have lost the way, be they Christian or not,  may find their hope being renewed. 

God bless

    The thing is l love to be loved for who l am and how God is making me.
    I like to know others know they are loved also.
    By Jesus. There can be no greater love than that a man should lay his life down for another.
