Sunday to Monday | Braggart or Beggar

On Sunday, Pastor Dave's sermon was themed “Braggart or Beggar” based on the text from
Luke 18: 9-17, the parable about the Pharisee and the tax collector. It was interesting to hear about Pastor Dave's run along the Las Vegas strip last Sunday morning, and his interaction with a taxi driver. This week, ask someone how might you ask God to bless them. You might be surprised at the response...

Poet Edwin Muir describes the life of a Christian as a mysterious fable in which “we receive more than we can ever give; we receive it from the past, on which we draw with every breath, but also…from the Source of the mystery itself, which religious people call ‘Grace.’”– An Autobiography (Graywolf Memoir).

Some questions to think about on this cool and rainy October morning...

·Have you ever looked at another person and been thankful that God has blessed you more than them (Luke 18:11)?

·Have you ever looked at another person and envied their faith? Or asked God for mercy and greater faith (Luke 18:13)?

·Let us pray for the humility to see ourselves as equal children of God’s own creating mutually in need of God’s mercy (Luke 18:14).

·May we reflect on the serious spiritual business of being playful and childlike in our faith life (Luke 18:15-17).
