You Are Invited to My Pity Party! (Galatians 6:3)

Did you receive your invitation to my pity party?

You couldn’t miss it! It was adorned with a plethora of complaints explaining why everyone else is wrong and I am right. When you arrive, you will be expected to acknowledge me first and agree that my viewpoint is correct and yours is wrong. You will be expected to sit with me and listen attentively as I recount all the reasons you should feel sorry for me.  And you may only speak to voice your support to me.

I always invite God to my pity parties. I am always thanking Him for not making me as selfish and narrow minded as everyone else I know. And God never says anything to me at my parties. Why should He? He knows I am right!

For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

Galatians 6:3 (ESV)

What? You are not coming? You are thanking God for your many blessings and praying that I will realize mine as well? How arrogant and inconsiderate you are, wrapping your answer in God’s Word! Too busy for me but not for God?

How about you? Will you come to my pity party? Why would you want to miss it?

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
