The Hardest Thing to Believe

The hardest thing to believe is what we will confess with our antiphon next Sunday.

"The Lord is righteous in all he has | done to us,*
for we have not obeyed his com- | mandments."

This is the hardest thing to believe, for it removes all credit or semblance of righteousness away from me. I am a sinner - mercy me O God!

Yet, so often we are tempted to place that little bit in us - that I obey just slightly better than someone else.

We have no obeyed His commandments. God be merciful to me, a sinner!

It's especially hard to believe this when you've got people telling me I need to start digging in fields to find Jesus and then tell me all I have to give to possess Him rightly =o)
