CQOD: 09/18/07 -- Wilson: our good acts?

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 18, 2007
    [Jesus:] "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men--robbers, evildoers, adulterers--or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.' But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.' I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
    -- Luke 18:10-14 (NIV)

    The devil never tempts us with more success than when he tempts us with a sight of our own good actions.
    ... Bp. Thomas Wilson (1698-1755)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, do whatever You require to get rid of my pride.
