Re: Verse reading–Luke 18:9-17 (Day Three) 
“For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled.”  Why is this so?  Does God do this in order to teach self-exalters a lesson?  Yes, but not if by “teach them a lesson” we mean “give them their comeuppance”.  The essence of these words is more about how God rules this universe and less about anticipating the fate of the proud.  When we look forward to the haughty getting theirs, aren’t we exalting ourselves over them?  Let us proceed with great care.
