Uniquely Similar

Have you ever stopped to consider how different, yet how alike we all are – with respect to sin?  Reflecting on some words I read a couple of weeks back during one of my morning devotions:

“In one respect we are indeed unalike, because each one of us privately forges his own particular error; yet we are very much alike in that, one and all, we forsake the one true God for prodigious trifles…

…For as rashness and superficiality are joined to ignorance and darkness, scarcely a single person has ever been found who did not fashion for himself an idol or specter in place of God.”

-John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, 1.5.11, 1.5.12
