After Jesus had spoken, a Pharisee invited him to dine at his home. He entered and reclined at table to eat. The Pharisee was amazed to see that he did not observe the prescribed washing before the meal. The Lord said to him, “Oh you Pharisees! Although you cleanse the outside of the cup and the dish, inside you are filled with plunder and evil. You fools! Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside? But as to what is within, give alms, and behold, everything will be clean for you.”
Do you only do what looks right, what people expect? Is your faith only surface, doing the right thing? If your actions are not based on your faith, they are for nothing. How do your actions reflect what you truly believe?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I always act as you lead me, never the way the world wants me to. Help me to show them you. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
