Luke 5:31

Scripture Of The Day

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.

Luke 5:31

The Pharisees wrapped their sin in respectability. They made themselves appear good by publicly doing good deeds and pointing at the sins of others. Jesus chose to spend time not with these proud, self-righteous religious leaders but with people who sensed their own sin and knew that they were not good enough for God. In order to come to God, we must repent; and in order to renounce sin, we must recognize it for what it is.
