"Who Is This?" (Philippians 2:5-11, Matthew 21:1-11)

Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. NunesRev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, April 9, 2017
Part of the Holy Week series, preached at a Palm Sunday service

Who Is This? “Numerous research studies have revealed that we a tendency to overestimate ourselves. For instance, when researches asked a million high school students how well they got along with their peers, none of the students rated themselves below average. As a matter of fact: 60 percent of students believed they were in the top 10 percent; 25 percent rated themselves in the top one percent. You'd think college professors might have more self-insight, but they were just as biased about their abilities. Two percent rated themselves below average; 10 percent were average; and 63 were above average; while 25 percent rated themselves as truly exceptional.” Psychologists call this the state of "illusory superiority." It simply means that we tend to inflate our positive qualities and abilities, especially in comparison to other people.
