A somewhat different prayer

Source: Hebrew for Christians (facebook)

“And may it please Thee, L-rd our G-d and G-d of our fathers, that you deliver us from vainly trying to feel better about ourselves by thinking less of others… Amen.”

or to put it in a more complicated language:

“A hurtful act is the transference to others of the degradation which we bear in ourselves.” – Simone Weil

The opposite of this is a scene familiar to us all:

The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men–robbers, evildoers, adulterers–or even like this tax collector. (Luke 18:11)
