October 8

A Thought: In our Bible study on Parables this week, we looked at the story of the religious Pharisee and the repentant Tax collector.

The Pharisee, puffed up in pride in his knowledge of scripture and keeping moral Law, judged the sinner. Religion says God will love us if we change. The Gospel says God’s love changes us. The tax collector recognized his sin and asked God for mercy. Today, join me in judging less, and confessing our own sin, more.

Rom.3:23-24 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Happy Thursday to you!
