“I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

– Luke 18:14 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

We should be most concerned when we think that we have arrived. The parable that Jesus shares showed that it is the man who realized his sin who would be restored, while the man who justified himself by his behavior is the one who will face resistance from God. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
