To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: Luke 18:9 NIV
I’m afraid I’m much like the Pharisee. I was raised in a Christian family and participated in all possible activities at church as a youth. As an adult, I’m on the church board and I teach Sunday school. People look to me as one of the leaders in the church; I’m someone that sets the tone and direction for our congregation. I’m proud of my position and the impact I’m having on my church . . . but wait, it’s not “my” church.
