The quote for today is:
( We are talking about the teachers of the law.)
Instead of giving you God’s law as food and drink
By which you can banquet on God,
They package it in bundles of rules, loading you down
Like pack animals.
They seem to take pleasure in watching you stagger
Under these loads, and they wouldn’t think of
Lifting a finger to help.
Their lives are perpetual fashion shows.
Embroidered prayer shawls one day,
And flowery prayers the next.
They love to sit at the head table at church dinners.
Basking in the most prominent positions.
Preening in the radiance of public flattery,
Receiving honorary degrees,
And getting called Doctor and Reverend.
Don’t let them put you on a pedestal like that.
You all have a single teacher and you are classmates.
Don’t set people up as experts over your life,
Letting them tell you what to do.
Save that authority for GOD: Let Him tell you what to do.
No one else should carry the title of “Father,”
You have only one father and He’s in Heaven.
Matthew 23:4-9 (MSG)
God does not put on a show and
Flattery will get you no where with Him.
Until Next Time
