IN­SPI­RA­TION

The Progress-Index Weekend - - OPINION - Matthew 23:1-12

Then said Je­sus to the crowds and to his dis­ci­ples, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat; so prac­tice and ob­serve what­ever they tell you, but not what they do; for they preach, but do not prac­tice. They bind heavy bur­dens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoul­ders; but they them­selves will not move them with their fin­ger. They do all their deeds to be seen by men; ... they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the syn­a­gogues, and salu­ta­tions in the mar­ket places, and be­ing called rabbi by men. But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. ... He who is great­est among you shall be your ser­vant; who­ever ex­alts him­self will be hum­bled, and who­ever hum­bles him­self will be ex­alted.
