Sometimes I Write Things

No One Righteous.

"None is righteous, no not one." Romans 3:10 I read these words today and it was a humbling reminder to me. It's easy to get on our high horse when "somebody else" fails. To judge them, to discredit them, to criticize them with flair. But wait, what did that verse...
