28th August 2012 Matthew 23:23-26
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
Do not be greedy
Do not hold onto things you need not
Instead, be full of justice, mercy and faithfulness.
Whatever is in our hearts is what we are truly; if we aim for the best in the world then that will be what happens.
