In preparation for the church’s Christmas Drama (I am playing Pilate), I started to read the life of Jesus leading up to the Crucifixion. Particularly from the Gospel of Matthew.
“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. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
- do I tithe
- do I go to church
- do I pray and read the Bible daily
- do I go to fellowship
- am I fighting for justice
- am I merciful (or when was the last time I show mercy)
- am I being faithful to the Lord
