"The prayer of the Pharisee, 'Thank God that I am not like other people' (Luke, Chapter 18, Verse 11), is often prayed. Indeed, it is unceasing!

"We are always comparing ourselves with others, trying to convince ourselves that we are better off than they are. It is a prayer that wells up from our fearful selves and guides many of our thoughts and actions. But this is a very dangerous prayer. It leads from compassion to competition, from competition to rivalry, from rivalry to violence, from violence to war, from war to destruction. It is a prayer that always deceives, because we are not the difference we try so hard to find. No, our deepest identity is rooted where we are like other people—weak, broken, sinful, but sons and daughters of God."

~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
