Luke 20:45–47 (ESV)

Beware of the Scribes

45 And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, 46 “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 47 who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.”

 

Jesus warns His disciples not to be impressed by the scribes’ display. Do not practice the faith simply to impress others. In contrast, for your salvation, Jesus “made Himself nothing, taking the form of a servant.… He humbled Himself” (Php 2:7–8).

 

I pray: Lord, grant me the humility and mind of Christ. Amen.

 

Edward A. Engelbrecht, The Lutheran Study Bible (St. Louis, MO: Concordia Publishing House, 2009), 1760.
