Be careful about feeling too good about yourself when others suffer public shame. Often times the only difference between their current situation and ours is not due to our deliberate choices but due to the Grace of God. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that you are better than them based on what you have done. Your only saving grace is actually the saving grace provided by God.
Lord, thank you for protecting me from myself and help me to acknowledge that fact more often. Help me to show grace as you have shown grace to me.
