Be Not a Hypocrite

P1030388

There is a lot of doublespeak in the world today.
People say one thing to hide what they really mean,
sometimes saying one thing to signify the exact opposite of what they are saying.
There is a lot of politically correct words and phrases
as well as euphemisms to hide the ugliness and pain present behind truth and reality.

Christ spoke the most inspiring words.
But he was also one who wouldn’t mince words in describing people and reality.
He had the harshest words for hypocrites, whose words did not match their deeds.
In fact, this would eventually get him crucified.
It takes great character and deep groundings in principles to be able to do that.

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin,
and have neglected the weightier things of the law:
judgment and mercy and fidelity.”
