Thanks for a Better Self-Image

The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: “God, I thank you that I am not like other men – robbers, evildoers, adulterers – or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.” – Luke 18:11-12

Thank you, God, that even though I am far too often just like this Pharisee You are transforming me into the likeness of the One who told the story about him – the One who takes away my veil of boast and pride and self.

“And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” – II Corinthians 3:18
