Acknowledging My Own Dunghill

Searcher of Hearts,

It is a good day to me when thou gives me a glimpse of myself;

Sin is my greatest evil, but thou art my greatest good;

I have cause to loathe myself, and not to seek self-honor, for no one desires to commend his own dunghill.

My country, family, church fare worse because of my sins, for sinners bring judgment in thinking sins are small, or that God is not angry with them.

Let me not take other good men as my example, and think I am good because I am like them,

For all good men are not so good as thou desires, are not always consistent, do not always follow holiness, do not feel eternal good in sore affliction.
