Jesus knew that people have a tendency to 'justify' themselves. We all want to think we are doing better than average, so we tend to minimize our problems to help us feel better. But minimizing our problems isn't the same thing as facing them. One attempt to justify themselves can stand in the way of their ability to understand themselves, and they will not change as long as they continue to do this. (Baker, 2001- emphasis added).
