HONOR GOD WITH YOUR WORDS

HONOR GOD WITH YOUR WORDS
ReadMatthew 23:23,24. While the Pharisees followed the letter of the law when it came to tithing, they neglected more important things like justice and mercy. How did that make them guilty of breaking the Second Commandment?Their hypocrisy dishonored God’s name.
HONOR GOD WITH YOUR WORDS
InMatthew 6:5, Jesus condemned hypocrites who made a show of praying out on the street corner so everyone would think they were faithful. In what way were they guilty of breaking the Second Commandment?They prayed to bring honor to themselves rather than to God.
HONOR GOD WITH YOUR WORDS
Jesus accused the Pharisees of honoring him with their lips but not with their hearts. They said the right things, but they didn’t mean what they said. They were thinking sinful thoughts. God doesn’t want such empty deception. Can you think of times when we are like the Pharisees in our worship?When we just go through the motions of worship without thinking. Or when we think of other things while we’re praying.

But false prophets are more dangerous than biting dogs.
