What’s Wrong With Society?

 Nearly a hundred years before George on Seinfeld asked this quesition, a newspaper in England did: “What’s wrong with society?”

The story goes that G.K. Chesterton wrote a brief letter to the newspaper, responding to the question.  His answer?

“Dear Sirs:

I am. 

Sincerely yours,
G. K. Chesterton.”   

That’s what humility looks like.  It takes a broken and contrite spirit to quit pointing the finger of sin at others and aim it at one’s own heart.

Quote taken from Tim Keller’s The Prodigal God, p. 46.
