Nudge: Mt 21:31

“Tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you” – the chief priests and elders of the people, as well as the scribes and Pharisees, were all very carefully pursuing God’s approval by law-keeping obedience. They were confident to the point of being blind to Jesus’ teachings. They were unwilling to even consider anything but “the truth” as they perceived it. But they were wrong and in error and their greatest error was their pride and presumptuousness.
