So, he said, “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips . . . for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.” (Isaiah 6:5)
When Isaiah arrived at the temple, he felt as though he had finally pulled himself together. But after he saw the Lord, he realized that he had fallen apart. As long as you’re looking at yourself in a horizontal reflection, you will always assume that you’re better than what you truly are. But if you ever set your gaze on the King of Kings, you will find that, like Isaiah, the only thing that you can say is “Woe.”
