The Pharisee & The Tax Collector

This week we are looking at the parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. Now, my first reaction when I read this parable is to go all finger-pointy and think about all the people I’ve met over the years who were sanctimoniously confident of their own righteousness. But I don’t believe that the reason God made sure that Luke recorded this parable was for me to do a lot of finger pointing. I am confident that we have this parable to lead all of us into the much harder task of taking a deep look into our own hearts and being honest about what is really going on in here.
