Sermon Illustrations

We can never gain an accurate measurement of our own morality and righteousness by comparing ourselves to other people. It’s a bit like measuring out a mile with a 12 inch ruler. Chances are the mile that you think you’ve marked out with that ruler won’t really be anywhere close to an actual mile. Measuring your righteousness or morality by the righteousness or unrighteousness of other people won’t get you any closer to an actual understanding of who you really are.
