Do you draw strong distinctions between yourself and your enemies? Are you glad that you are not like them? How does this affect your prayer life? For I cited the bad example of the man who prayed thus with himself, that he thanked God that he was not like other men, such as the publican and the sinner nearby. Do you find this smug, self-satisfied self-righteousness appalling? Me too. I said that this man was not justified while the repentant sinner was. So what would be a better approach? Instead of thinking of the ways in which your enemies are different from you, think of the ways you are the same, and thank me for that.
