Hosea 5:15-6:6, Ps 51, Luke 18:9-14

It’s about love, not judgement

Humility can be a hard lesson. We try to please God and may feel delighted with our progress – for example, by using prayer and self-discipline to overcome particular faults. Nevertheless, Jesus points out we mustn’t judge others: rather, we should persist in humbly continuing our own journey to God. Elevating ourselves by putting others down isn’t the way he wants us to be.

Dear Lord, please keep me focused on building and strengthening my love for you and others. Rather than judging my neighbour’s weaknesses, may I learn to praise and emulate their virtues.
