WHAT IS YOUR POSITION?

OUR ONE MINUTE WISDOM FOR TODAY, MARCH 14, 2015:

“Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.

The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself. ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity–greedy, dishonest, adulterous–or even like the tax collector.  I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’

But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’

I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.

-Jesus in Luke 18: 9-14

Reflections:

*Are we humble?

*Do we pray for mercy?

*Who are we like when we pray, Pharisee or the tax collector?

Saint of the day:

St. Matilda, pray for us.

Be humble,

Brother Mo
