“Not That Good”

“…as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one.” – Romans 3:10   

A headline caught my eye this week which read, “(Richard) Sherman says Tom Brady isn’t the Clean-cut Hero Everyone Thinks He Is.” The article goes on to say “while people seem to carry on with their compliments and talk of Brady as someone who does everything right, Sherman says he and his teammates ‘know him to be otherwise.’”

Now, let me clear on this, I don’t care who wins the Super Bowl. And, I’m not a fan of Sherman or Brady. But, this isn’t about them, it’s about us – you and me.

The headline is what got my attention. Because the truth of the matter is NONE of us is all that nice. None of us is as “clean-cut” as others may think. And, there is always someone who knows it.

We are all broken people who deal with some sort of sin in our life. Most often we try to hide it, but inevitably it will rear its ugly head and we (and others) must face the fact that we are not perfect people.

My prayer this week is that we will realize our brokenness and turn to God, who loves us as we are, but loves us too much to leave us that way.
