Matthew 23:23–24 (ESV)

4Th of 7 Woes

23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 24 You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!


Some Pharisees were so scrupulous about tithing that they even gave 10 percent of their garden herbs. Compared to the Pharisees’ failure to keep the weightier portions of the moral law—the commands to act justly and mercifully toward others—their painstaking tithing of garden produce is absurd.


I pray: Help me to give with a joyful heart and as an outpouring of my love for what you have done for me.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
