“Luke 18:9-14 “I am a Sinner”
9To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked
down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: 10"Two men went up
to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
11The Pharisee stood up and prayed abouta]'>[a] himself: 'God, I thank you
that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
According to Jesus’ parable, a Pharisee and a tax collector went to the temple and prayed at the same time. The Pharisee showed off what he had done, and the tax collector just asked for mercy from God. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
In the humane side, the Pharisee was a more righteous man than the tax collector, even his achievement was remarkable. But God regarded the tax collector as righteous one rather than the Pharisee.
Even in our life our faith, we have desire to show off and notify what we have done. But sometimes, our own righteousness blocks the relationship between God and us. If we want to be admitted by God really, we just must ask for God’s mercy whatever we did. And then God is going to change our being. Eventually, we become righteous not by our effort and ability but God’s love and work for us. Humility is the best way to be acknowledged by God. Therefore, we should be humble in accordance God’s intention.
