Two Men in Prayer–A Thought

Two men went to the temple to pray to God. One was a religious figure, the other, a hated taxman. One mentioned his deeds before God, while the other asked for mercy. Jesus Christ, in describing this story, declared that the taxman arose justified in the sight of God more than the self righteous Pharise. The Taxman grasped the truth of a holy God being a merciful God as well and left the temple Relieved in spirit. Is there anything wrong with practicing disciplines such as giving, fasting or prayer? By no means are they. They go awry in the souls of men who use them to get brownie points in buying God’s love as well as demeaning others as being ‘spiritually beneath’ them . Papa desires intimacy, not idolatry. –Luke 18:10-14
