[they] looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them.
Jesus never used names in this parable and yet they felt the conviction in their hearts and reacted in anger and in defense rather than being humbled and repenting.
I never want to sin in my anger and not repent because of pride. I want to always look to God for His forgiveness for what I’ve done.
Lord, slap me with my pride, causing me pain if I get caught up in it. I pray I would see it coming and repent. Forgive me Lord, for my foolish behaviors. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
