Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples, saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees have taken their seat on the chair of Moses. Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example. For they preach but they do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens hard to carry and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they will not lift a finger to move them. All their works are performed to be seen.” Mt_23:1-12
Well, we don’t want to get political here, but does this not sound familiar, from our corporations to our government! Yes, we are to follow the laws to the letter – but DO NOT follow their example!
Jesus IS the ONLY example we should be following!
