How sinful are we?

As it is written:
“There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away,
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.”
“Their throats are open graves;
their tongues practice deceit.”
“The poison of vipers is on their lips.”
“Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”
“Their feet are swift to shed blood;
ruin and misery mark their ways,
and the way of peace they do not know.”
“There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Romans 3:10-18
            The biggest problem with us is that we do not understand how sinful we are in God’s eyes.  We think we’re okay and maybe arrogantly think we’re better than that other person.  In God’s eyes we are horribly evil.  We all don’t do anything right ever.
            We fall short all the time.      
…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God… Romans 3:23
            What’s amazing is that God loves utterly despicable people like us.  We cannot do anything right except to realize how wrong we are and how much we need Jesus to save us.
