Jesus’ Message on Religion — Appearing religious vs. exercising justice, mercy, & faith.

Today’s Readings:
Reading 1: Matthew 23
Reading 2: Micah 6:8
Reading 3: James 1:22-27

Jesus often speaks against religion, but today He is clearer than ever in His condemnation of empty behavior. Religion is man’s effort to please God, when God desires relationship that revolutionizes our interaction with Himself and one another.

God is not asking for observance of regulations but for embrace of transformation.

How will that be seen in your life today?

Have a great day!

Mark.
