In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. Mat 23:28
Story: Jesus was speaking of the religious people of His time. They did everything to make them look righteous in front of people but their heart was corrupt. Jesus called them Mat 23:33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?” What scary comments?
Lesson: Do we live to gain a good name in front of others? Are we really serious about how we act when no one see? How do we spend our time? Do we have a close intimate relation with Jesus, is that our foremost priority. Jesus said “how often I have longed to gather ….. you were not willing” Mat 23:37 Are we willing to enter into a serious relationship with Jesus.
Prayer: Father Lord, help me to love you with all my heart. Teach me love others with God’s love. Amen.
