“They Disregard…”

“They Disregard…”

Blessings folk!

Note how Jesus references the “love of God”.

Luk 11:37-44

Now when He had spoken, a Pharisee asked Him to have lunch with him;
and He went in, and reclined at the table.

When the Pharisee saw it,
he was surprised that He had not first ceremonially washed before the meal.

But the Lord said to him,
“Now you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and of the platter;
but inside of you, you are full of robbery and wickedness.

“You foolish ones, did not He who made the outside make the inside also?

“But give that which is within as charity, and then all things are clean for you.

“But woe to you Pharisees!
For you pay tithe of mint and rue and every kind of garden herb, and yet disregard justice and the love of God; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.

“Woe to you Pharisees!
For you love the chief seats in the synagogues
and the respectful greetings in the market places.

“Woe to you!
For you are like concealed tombs, and the people who walk over them are unaware of it.”

The Pharisees were more interested in the ceremony than they were in man.
They feigned a “religious walk” that was second to none.
Yet, many were frauds.

Nothing has changed.
Today, many Religionists, especially in “leadership position” do the same.
They simple fake it.
They are frauds.
They are all about the ceremony (“worship services”, “meetings”, etc).
Yet, they do not do the basics of the faith.
They disregard true justice.
They disregard the love of God.

Think on that.
They disregard the love of God.

That explains a lot.

There is a feigned “love” of people, but it is not authentic.
Such love feeds into an agenda.

An agenda of power, prestige, position, money, fame, control, etc.

Such is not the way of the Lord.

The way of the Lord is the love of God.

Any other way is not the truth.

Love God.
Love one another.
