“God, I Thank Thee, That I Am Not As Other Men Are,….” & “God Be Merciful Unto Me A Sinner.” – The Pharisee & The Publican©


And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

Two men went up to into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful unto me a sinner.

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for everyone that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Luke 18: 9-14 KJV

The difference between the two? Their heart.💕 

But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. – 1 Samuel 16:7 KJV 💕
