Say It! Do It.

Daily Reading – Exodus 25-26 / Matthew 23:1-22
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 23:2-3 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Most of us have heard the phrase, “Do what I say, not what I do.” Most often, we find this being said by someone who is doing something that is illegal, immoral, or harmful in some way. In addition, it is often used with children, by adults who do not want these children to follow in their footstep down a wrong path.
In today’s passage, that is what Jesus was telling the people of that day. In the synagogue was a seat called Moses’ Seat. It was a place of authority. When they sat there, they would read the law as it was written.
Jesus said, listen to the reading, it is the Word of God. However, do not watch the lives of the teachers, they do not live up to what they are teaching.
WHAT WILL YOU DO:
If someone were examining your life today,
would it live up to what you say about
your relationship with God?
You know people are watching you?
