LESSON FOR WEEK (April 7 - April 13)
TOPIC: Being Really Thankful
Scripture related To The Topic:
St Luke 18:11-14
:11. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, "God, I thank thee, that I am not as others men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican."
:12. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
:13. And the publican, standing afar off, would not life up so mush as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon 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 every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Jesus tells us plainly here, how not to conduct ourselves when praying to God. Plain and simple; the Pharisee was trying to make himself big in the eyes of God. He's acting as if God doesn't see every thought entering his mind and heart. And, know how he's going to respond to them before he acts. We should never act like we are perfect beings, and certainly not judge what others are doing, no matter what it is. We need all the time, and all the help we can get from God to make and keep ourselves as free as human flesh can be from sin, so we will someday make it to Heaven. And judging others, especially trying to make ourselves big in the eyes of God; is not the way.
Be ever mindful of the example Jesus gave us here; and pray that we are forgiven for our sins, and that everyone will be forgiven for theirs as well. This is showing love; the way Jesus told us to.
