HUMBLE YOURSELF Jesus told a teaching story about two men who went to pray. One was an important religious leader and the other a sinful tax collector. The religious leader prayed thanking God that he was not a sinner like other people, including the tax collector and thanking God that he was obedient to God, including in his giving. While the tax collector did not even feel worthy enough to look toward heaven and told God he was sorry and asked for forgiveness for his sins. Jesus tells us when they went home, it was not the religious leader but the sinful tax collector “WHO WAS PLEASING TO GOD. IF YOU PUT YOURSELF ABOVE OTHERS, YOU WILL BE PUT DOWN. BUT IF YOU HUMBLE YOURSELF, YOU WILL BE HONORED” [Lk 18:14 CE]{Mt 23:12}. Do you humble yourself? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
