Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:3-4 NIV)
When you desire to take advantage of others so as to gain an advantage for yourself. When you desire to take the glory of others away so as to gain glory for yourself.
When you begin to feel contempt towards others because of their weaknesses. When you begin to think of others as being in the way of your contentment.
When you get so dissatisfied with your life that you have lost your sense of gratitude. When you begin to feel proud about your accomplishments thinking that you are greater than everyone else.
Then when you fail, receive God's mercy, ultimately revealed on the cross. Until our hearts, minds, and wills are completely renewed, we will fail. Therefore, we are called to live repentant lives.
Human beings are saved (made whole) through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Through Jesus' coming, the healing of his brokenness (isolation, guilt/shame, insecurity/grief) begins. When Jesus comes again, his healing becomes complete.
