Thought of the Day !!

What sorrow awaits you teachers of the religious law and you Pharisees.  Hypocrites!  For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy--full of greed and self-indulgence!  You blind Pharisee!  First wash the inside of the cup and the dish, and then the outside will become clean, too.
                                                Matthew 23:25-26 (NLT)

What can we learn from this?  The same thing that the Pharisees and religious teachers were taught.  It doesn't matter how nice and polished we look on the outside.  Our clothes don't matter.  What we drive doesn't matter.  What we've done to make ourselves look professional, cool or presentable doesn't matter. 

What matters is what's on the inside.  We must focus on cleaning up our hearts.  Let us work on loving kindness, patience with one another, a deeper relationship with Christ, etc.  Then the rest will all fall into place. 

In the love of Christ,
