When You speak, You speak simple, yet profound, uplifting truth. Foolish men speak half-truths and lies intended to elevate themselves, not the listener. Your penetrating words reveal the self-serving intentions of the pompous.
This Tuesday more than 2000 years ago You exposed the hypocrisy of church elites and the self-proclaimed leaders, those whose self-promotion and imposition of law upon law upon the common worshipper were designed to sustain their control. Today we face the same elitist, power hungry influencers on our social media, college campuses and across the political spectrum.
I have often let their voices dominate my thinking instead of tuning them out and turning to You. You are my only hope…help me stand firm on the truth.
Scripture: “Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs that look beautiful on the outside but inside are full of the bones of the dead and of everything unclean.” Matthew 23:27
