Returning to incompetence

Off late I have been struggling with anger. Anger against people. Especially “proud” people. These proud people are those who expect consideration, but do not give consideration to others. But while I have found myself justified, I have also realised that this anger arises because of pride that has also begun to emerge in me. While I try to be merciful to others, I am merciful primarily to people who naturally “deserve” mercy — the weak, or those who admit to weakness. But the proud are also in need of mercy, but I hold out mercy because I feel valid in my own position. I feel right, and thus justified.

So, off late, recognising the errors of my ways, I am attempting to reconsider myself. I think I am capable. But now I want to recognise myself as incapable. As a person who has nothing in himself, and thus, no voice to critique the proud.

Don’t know how this incompetence will work out, but first of all, I try out… silence.

Passage for this Season

Philippians 2:11-13 (NIV) (12)Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, (13)for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
