Scripture : John 8:3-11 & Luke 18:9-14
9 Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be [a]humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 18:9-14 NKJV
Pride is the Opposite of Humility
1. Trusts in themselves Luke 18:9
2. Trusts in own righteousness Luke 18:9
3. See themselves as better than others Luke 18:11
God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble. 1st Peter 5:5b NKJV.
