be gracious

      When somebody really lets you down, you can either focus on poor-you (who deserves so much more), or you can pray as if you loved her.

“Be gracious to [her], O God. . . . With abundant compassion, blot out [her] transgressions.” Psalm 51:1

“Pride is spiritual cancer. It eats up the very possibility of love or contentment. . . .” C. S. Lewis
