The Law And Us…

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.”-Matthew 23:23

Jesus taught us so much 😊.  Clearly, tithing is a good thing.  As is volunteering our time and participating in church.  It’s not necessarily about what we get, but about what we give.

But all of that is pointless, if we miss the main message:  How important “justice, mercy and faithfulness” are.  These are the “more important” parts of the law.  Justice and Mercy both matter. 

And God is faithful, even when we are not.  We need to learn to be the same 😊
