We all love good stories - especially when they are short and punchy. Jesus was the master storyteller. Many times throughout the Gospels, he told short stories, called parables, that left challenging and life-changing impacts on the listener's life. Join us as we walk through some of Jesus' parables. Long Story Short. January 29th - April 9th at Grace Point Church

Title Parable of The Pharisee and the Tax Collector.

Luke 18:9 “He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt:”

Luke 18:10 - “”Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.”

Luke 18:11-12 “The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’”

Luke 18:13-14 “But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.””
