It may sound funny at first, but Jesus tells us to be like a cheating tax collector. He was talking to people convinced of their righteousness, looking down on others with judgement. How do we hear the story? Let us humbly consider the source of many of our privileges and be more consistently aware of the toll others bear for our comforts. We all rely on God’s mercy, especially those of us with advantages that delude us into believing we are self-reliant. When we open ourselves before God, we can all be certain of God’s grace.
