Jesus also told this parable to people who were sure of their own goodness and despised everybody else. "Once there were two men who went up to the Temple to pray: one was a Pharisee, the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood apart by himself and prayed, 'I thank you, God, that I am not greedy, dishonest ... like everybody else. I thank you that I am not like that tax collector over there. I fast two days a week, and I give you a tenth of all my income.'
"But the tax collector stood at a distance and would not even raise his face to heaven, but beat on his breast and said, 'God, have pity on me, a sinner!' I tell you," said Jesus, "the tax collector, and not the Pharisee, was in the right with God when he went home. For all who make themselves great will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be made great."

Luke 18: 9-14
Luke 19: 1-10 - the story of Zacchaeus

Humility
This famous parable very clearly shows us the  importance of understanding ourselves and how being humble (showing humility) brings  us closer to God and gives us a chance to make our relationships grow. The story of Zacchaeus, from the next chapter, demonstrates this very clearly in the way that Zacchaeus treats his neighbours after he has met Jesus.
