Luke in 40 - Luke 18

Luke 18:1-17 

In today's reading we hear a couple of parables and Jesus teaching about the Kingdom of God and little children.

The parable I would like to spend some time with is the parable of the pharisee and the tax collector. In this parable the pharisee using his time of prayer to lift himself up, talk about how good he is, and even tear down the person praying next to him. 

Unfortunately, I think there are times in all of our lives when we will tear someone else down so we can fell better about ourselves. In doing this we think we are lifting ourselves up on the backs of others, but in fact what we are doing is showing how petty we can be. 

God love all of us, we are his children. And we should embrace each other rather than hurt each other.

As we continue this march to the cross, is there anything you need to confess?
