All of them were the beest parables. But if i will going to choose, i'll prefer "the parable of pharises and Tax collector." Why did i choose that? I choose that because it makes me humble before God because God did not choose the wise man in this world. It means God is not a respecter of person. He judges you not of your works to him or to others, but of your sincirity and honesty and repentant heart towards God. God needs not the wise and holy person in this world, God needs person who is repentant and loves God above all. God is happy for those sinners, heinous kind of sinners like me, who is very repentant and believe God in their lives. This parable tells us that good works cannot please God, repentance and faith is. This parable tells us also that God is a merciful God, and he really forgives a sinner who is very much sincere in his repentance. No matter how sinful you are and how wicked you are, God will forgive you and not only to forgive you, but ready to renew your life. He loves sinners, repentant sinners. But he hates people who is praud and self righteous. He hates those people whom they do good works for the sake of boasting themselves, and not for boasting God in themeselves. My friend, can i ask you a question? For you, what is your favorite parable in the Bible?

My favorite parable is when Jesus told a story about the blind leading the people. I dont like wicked people pretending to be very good. Like some religious leader group I feel sorry for those who believe on them.
