Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!
Psalms 51:1-2 (ESV)

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Start with a clean slate.” May this passage be the humble longing of our hearts as we venture into what’s ahead.

How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.
Luke 6:42

Be deliberate about spending your time removing your own specks and logs rather than pointing out others’.

And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message.
John 13:14-16 (NLT)

Let us continually be motivated by service and humility, treating others as greater than ourselves. Jesus gave us many examples of how to do this. Let us observe and follow His lead.

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already in the ages before us.
Ecclesiastes 1:9,10 (ESV)

When we find ourselves in situations where our self-importance blinds our perspective of the above, let’s take a step back, move away from vanity and into a humble posture.

If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.
John 13:14,15 (ESV)

Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. They were totally amazed, for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in.
Mark 6:51,52 (NLT)

It is so easy to be jaded and arrogant, thinking surely God isn’t moving around us. Let us pray that our hearts would be soft and able to discern when God is doing something in our midst!
