AWARE

“The tax collector in Luke 18:9-14 teaches us, as does Jesus, that this gospel is for sick people, not for the righteous. The tax collector knows he is a sinner and just cries out to God for grace. When we are first aware of our own brokenness, our eyes are opened to see our own faces in the faces of the oppressed and to see our own hands in the hands of the oppressors. Then we shall all be truly free.”
~Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution
