Bible: Luke 18:11-14

18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed about himself like this: 1  ‘God, I thank 2  you that I am not like other people: 3  extortionists, 4  unrighteous people, 5  adulterers – or even like this tax collector. 6  18:12 I fast twice 7  a week; I give a tenth 8  of everything I get.’ 18:13 The tax collector, however, stood 9  far off and would not even look up 10  to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, be merciful 11  to me, sinner that I am!’ 12  18:14 I tell you that this man went down to his home justified 13  rather than the Pharisee. 14  For everyone who exalts 15  himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
