To See Thee More Clearly

The Pharisees, although astute at observing religious rules and rituals, did not do these things with pure intentions. Jesus clearly saw the envy and pride in their hearts.

It certainly is not easy in our material world to keep our hearts and intentions holy. We cannot rely on our own human frailty to resist sin and temptation. Even if people around us may observe that we are doing what seems right and admirable, the Lord can see straight into our hearts. We cannot be good, pure or holy on our own. We need to pray for the grace to continue following him.

Day by day
Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see Thee more clearly
Love Thee more dearly
Follow Thee more nearly
Day by day

    So true! We can’t do it on our own.
