Day 11 – Better than that

Matthew 5:20

Unless you do far better than the Pharisees in the matters of right living, you won’t know the first thing about entering the kingdom.

The Pharisees had most thing right. They knew the rules and they kept the rules well; washing their hands before meals, paying their tithe and observing the Sabbath day. What’s even better they were great at, accountability? No sorry, that would be judgment. You see they got so caught up in their rules they forgot one main thing.

Man looks at the outward appearance, man keeps a check list and weights all things on the scale of right. God on the other hand looks at the heart. Mindlessly or should I say heartlessly following a bunch of rules get you nowhere with God… You’ve got to do way better than that.

  1. A big fat amen!! I believe Jesus would wear a biker jacket that says, “Rules Are Made to be Broken.” He did it all the time in the interest of PEOPLE.
