Jesus teaches us that the origin of evil lies in the human heart. While the devil tempts us and encourages us to choose evil, the origin of it is human.

Can I name my responsibility for the evil that I choose? Am I prepared to accept personal responsibility for my failings? Temptation to evil is the work of the devil, but It begins in my heart.

Dear Jesus, help me to know myself as You know me. I am a sinner. My failing are my own. Give me the grace to accept this and to change.
