Bold Beware

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Luke 12:1-3

As we begin Luke 12 we see a strong caution about hypocrisy and "the leaven of the Pharisees" from Jesus. This warning is spoken to his disciples but this warning is also said in front of the large crowd that had gathered to hear and see Jesus. So it really was a broad, as well as bold, beware.

As I took in this passage the words leaven and hypocrisy captured my attention. I was familiar with and understood both but decided to look up their definitions to see if anything the dictionary said would add to the visual I had of leaven or my overall processing of this passage. The extra couple of minutes I spent were good as both definitions got me thinking a little more richly.

What are you doing to guard against hypocrisy in your life? What are some ways we can combat the perception of so many in the world today that Christians are hypocrites? Tami

The best way I know of to combat the perception of hypocrisy is to strive to live an authentic Christian life, seeing to it that my words and my actions are matching up with each other, and that both are matching up worth Christ's example and instruction in His Word.
