BITE: Beware of Hypocrisy…

I got a little lazy with my posting so you are going to see a bunch of posts follow this one; to catch up. With the exception of a few, these will mostly be Bites as I have had a busy week leading up to school starting and Bella heading off on her Missions trip.

“Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.  Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.  Therefore, whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops. Luke 12:1-3 [ESV]

If there is one thing as human followers of Jesus, that can tear down the reputation of our witness, it is hypocrisy. What I have realized in my walk is that our ‘Old Man’ can show up and decimate an upright walk. This is why the ‘New Man’ (the new creature) must put death the ‘Old Man’ everyday. Some days I am better at this than others.

Being in God’s Word each day has a way of grounding your ‘faith perspective’ in a such a way that when the Holy Spirit inside of us speaks/warns/admonishes, we hear it.
