Church: Welcome Mat
It’s the sideways glace that gets us into trouble. It’s a look in the wrong direction. Jesus tells a story about a Pharisee who has one eye on heaven and his other eye on a tax collector. As a result he despises the Pharisee and tells God that he is thankful he is not like that obvious sinner. Jesus tells this story because as we grow closer to God a temptation to a big ego grows bigger and bigger. How do we fight this tendency?
