We are all recovering Pharisees, or we have all known people who are like the Pharisees. Pharisees are uncomfortable in the presence of someone who has submitted his will. They avoid spiritual conversations, and the lifestyle and behavior of spiritual people often seem stupid to them. Pharisees might be the type who, when they go to worship, criticize the sermon, the song leaders, the people in the choir, the elders, the ministries, and the number of contributions. They have forgotten that the whole idea behind the Sunday morning gathering is self-examination. As I spend more and more time examining myself, I feel better and happier. My job description is not to help God fix other people, but to work on myself with the help of God.
