Aug 23 Jesus told this parable to self-righteous people who despised others. “Two men prayed in the temple, one a Pharisee, the other a tax collector. The Pharisee prayed thus: God, I thank you Im not like others: greedy, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice weekly and tithe everything I get. But the tax-man kept afar and wouldnt even raise his head, but beat his chest, saying,      God, have pity on me, a sinner. I tell you, this repentant man, not the other, went home justified. For the proud will be humbled, and the humble will be exalted.1
