On the surface

On the surface

Luke 18:10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.”

A parable regarding those who considered themselves righteous and looked down on others.

2 men. Both equal in sex.

1 Temple. Both share the same place of worship.

1 purpose. Both equally going to pray.

They are equals. But not really.

I wonder who is most righteous?

I wonder who is lesser than the other?

It’s obvious isn’t it?

Only if you understand the parable.

On the surface the tex collector is the lesser.

The Pharisee is the righteous one.

The surface can be wrong.
