In today’s Gospel reading from Luke, Jesus reminds us through parable of the pitfalls that await those whose self-righteousness and contempt for others can blind one to the light. That’s not to say that we aren’t invited to pursue the truth and address injustice where it is to be found. We’re reminded of that BCP prayer that includes “… not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offences … “ as a guiding truth for everyday life.
