How easy it can be to judge. The Pharisee in the parable does not come across as a pleasant man, with his superiority complex and his judgmental attitude towards the tax collector. He knew nothing of the other man praying alongside him in the temple, of his joys or his struggles. Yet he was ready to dismiss him and others as ‘grasping, unjust, adulterous’. The tax collector, on the other hand, was humble enough to admit to his shortcomings, and to simply ask God for his mercy and help. Like the Pharisee, our attitude towards others can leave room for improvement. We can be all too ready to judge others and to feel ourselves somehow superior to them, without knowing anything about their situation.
