Today's Good News


03/27 Luke 18:9-12
Then Jesus told this story to some who had great self-confidence and scorned everyone else: 10 “Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a dishonest tax collector. 11 The proud Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: ‘I thank you, God, that I am not a sinner like everyone else, especially like that tax collector over there! For I never cheat, I don’t sin, I don’t commit adultery, 12 I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.’
It is good that we know Jesus. Being in the family of God we are called to be ambassadors of Christ. He wants us to seek the lost, to share the Gospel. We don’t judge the world because that is God’s job. We are called to be salt and light and to share Jesus with everyone we meet. Note that there is great arrogance in the Pharisee. We should learn to lead humble lives and be the emissary of light and life.
