  • So, You Think You're Not A Pharisee?

    Contributed by Dan Funk on Aug 27, 2014

    Christ directed the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Praying in the Temple to those who trusted in their own righteousness. We are more prone to trust in our own righteousness than we might think. This self-trust can keep us from being merciful.

    Over the years, we have all heard preachers address the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican praying in the Temple. “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 more

    based on 1 rating

    Large crowds followed Jesus, coming where He was. He could've waited on them to come to Him, but often He went out, seeking them. Jesus was often found among those society rejected. We too must be willing to go where they are, seeking to reach them.
