Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing , and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

It is a common thing for humans to want to justify their actions, hence it is difficult for men to confess their sins and ask God for mercy. While God’s mercy is of His own will, it is still crucial to ask for it whenever we err.

You can deceive men to believe in your ‘righteousness’ but not God, today’s text calls it ‘filthy rag’. One who acknowledges His sins and submit to God obtains mercy (I John 1:9).

Talk to God: Father, help me to hold on to your righteousness only in Jesus name, amen.
