Prayers and Scripture for Lent
He (Jesus) then spoke this parable addressed to those who believed in their own self-righteousness while holding everyone else in contempt.
Sometimes when we are trying so hard to do what is right, we forget how lost we once were. Being on Your righteous path does not make us righteous, it is Your law that is righteous. Let us not forget how quickly we can fall. Yet even in our fall, when we humble ourselves to you, you are there to pick us up again and again.
Praise Your unending mercy!
In the name of Jesus,
