Praying Away Self-Display

The Lord promises that it is the pure in heart who shall see Him, the meek who shall inherit the earth and those who seek righteousness will be satisfied.

When I seek to promote me it is neither pure, meek or righteous - so I must pray:

Dear Father, fill my heart with compassion and blind me to every opportunity to promote myself. May I listen to the words of others such that I may bless them, and no longer seek and speak such that they will bless me. AMEN

"Consider carefully what you hear," Jesus continued. "With the measure you use, it will be measured to you - and even more. (Mark 4:24)

The way I respond to what I hear will be also measured to me, but multiplied.

Righteousness is the separation of a man from his self-promoting, self-indulgent ways.

As with sin, righteousness too is never conducted in a vacuum. It carries benefits for both others and myself well beyond its days.
