The Blind Guides
Matthew 15:3-9 “Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the
sake of your tradition? For God said, 'Honor your father and mother' and 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.' But you say that if a man says
to his father or mother, 'Whatever help you might otherwise have received from
me is a gift devoted to God,' he is not to 'honor his father' with it. Thus you
nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. You hypocrites! Isaiah
was right when he prophesied about you:" 'These people honor me with their
lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their
teachings are but rules taught by men.' "
Pray that our hearts would
be drawn to God in a way like never before. Pray that we would not get caught
up in the do’s and don’ts of religion but we would fall more deeply in love with
our Heavenly Father. Pray that we would fully surrender our lives to Him and would only say and do what is honoring to Him.
