Good, but Not Good Enough

No one actually claims to be good!  We just comfort ourselves with the idea that we’re “good enough.”   

We have some reference point in mind; a comparison to people that are below where we are.  And as long as we stay above the base population of the “bad” people, that we can say we’re “good enough.”

Of course the irony is that bar that separates the “bad” people from the “good enough” people is always defined by where we’re standing!

Still though, there’s a nagging feeling that being “less worse” than everyone else, or “good enough,” doesn’t actually give us the confidence that we’re “good.”

An honest conscience always looks for a Redeemer.
