"When we're seeking righteousness, we're walking around with our eyes on ourselves. When we're seeking God, our eyes lift up off of ourselves on onto Him." - Day 3
Here lies the paradox...
And this is where it takes humility.
It's humbling to admit that I can't be good and righteous and holy, that I need a Savior.
It's humbling to have to love a God so awesome and holy, starkly contrasting my own humanity.
It's humbling to say thank you.
We don't seek to build righteousness on our own. We seek Jesus and in seeking Him and humbly accepting the righteousness He offers we find Him making us holy.
