A Daily Devotion for Monday, February 22


Matthew 23:23


”Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices- mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important important matters of the law- justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.”


These words from Jesus are for all of us, not just the Pharisees. As a product of my transformation, I hope for behavior and attitudes that reflect my walk with God. I would like for others to know, when they are with me, that I follow Jesus. Do my choices and my behaviors always fully reflect these important ideals: justice, mercy and faithfulness?

Father God, you have shown me many ways to practice mercy. Sometimes I don’t see the opportunities, or I ignore them. I will try to pay attention, and will try not to let my own feelings get in the way. Amen
