It’s not so hard to look good to people, Lord.
It’s not so easy to have hearts that match our sterling reputations.
Form us a little more each day into people of integrity; change us on the inside so that we will truly be who you have made us to be.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which on the outside look beautiful, but inside they are full of the bones of the dead and of all kinds of filth. So you also on the outside look righteous to others, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” (Matthew 23:27-28)
