Humility before God

Goodies and Baddies? We humans find it much too easy to dismiss those we disagree with as evil or stupid, which leaves us feeling that we ourselves are both good and wise. However, when we come before God in prayer and worship that attitude has to change, if we have any sense of spiritual reality. Suddenly we are the ones who need forgiveness and enlightenment. There are sound reasons why all our Anglican liturgies have a rite of confession and forgiveness early in the proceedings. This Sunday’s gospel reading is all about a “Good Guy” who got it all wrong in his approach to God, and a “Bad Guy” who got it right. A timely reminder for us all!
