Re:Verse passage – Luke 18:9-14 (day six)

…the tax collector stood at a distance. Luke 18:13

Pride does one thing extremely well, it creates distance. This distance was at the heart of this parable. The Pharisees’ self-righteousness had reduced most people to “them” and “those people,” resulting in an unholy separation.

Unholy, in that we weren’t designed for distance, we were made for connection, with God and with others.

In what ways has pride kept you for making connections with God and with others?  Where has pride created an unholy distance in your life?
