Bible Reading Today: Matthew 23:25-32

Jesus likens the Pharisees to whitewashed tombs. Like these tombs which appear fine on the outside but on the inside are filled with bones of dead people and everything unclean, their hearts are filled with hypocrisy and wickedness. Only by first cleaning the inside can the outside also be clean.

Applications
  • How much of your time and energy is devoted to your outward image? How much is spent on your inner heart? Ask God to help you right your priorities and to be more concerned about your character than your charisma.

  • Ask God to reveal to you any spiritual blind spots that you have. Pray for Him to allow you to know the depths of your sin and His forgiveness. Ask Him to enable you to live a transformed life.
