Jesus said this about the Pharisees and teachers of the law:
“So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they DO NOT PRACTICE what they PREACH.” (Matthew 23:3 NIV)
These guys did not practice what the preached! My question to you is, do you PRACTICE what you PREACH?
You tell others not to steal, but do you steal (work, IRS, stores, etc)? You say it’s wrong to commit adultery, but do you lust and commit adultery? You tell your daughters to dress modest but do you dress sensual? You tell others to read the Bible but do you read the Bible? You tell others to pray and trust in God but do you pray and trust in God when troubles come your way? You tell your children not to lie, but do you lie?
Do you know what Jesus called these kind of people? HYPOCRITES & CHILDREN OF HELL! (See Matthew 23:13, 15)
Don’t become a modern day Pharisee. Practice what you preach!
