—Ephesians 4:32 ESV

*

An ancient legend from the East tells how a great Sultan–who was known for being a devout man of God–overslept and didn’t awaken at the hour of prayer. When the Devil saw that the hour was passing, he came and waked him, urging him to get out of bed and pray.

The Bible tells us that Jesus “spake this parable unto those who trusted in THEMSELVES, that THEY were righteous, and who therefore despised and looked down upon others.” (Luke 18:9)
