The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector search-journal:FaithOfJesus@September23
@ And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
@ Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
@ The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
@ I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
@ And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
@ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
- Ask yourself and journal:
- What do I find here about the faith that Jesus possesses?
- How can I keep it alive in my daily walk?
