Sincerely Yours #31
In Matthew chapter 15 we find that Jesus’ teaching is once again unconventional. It also goes, as usual, against the grain of the bristly Pharisees. In these verses Jesus is stressing the importance of inner purity over outer cleanliness – and this is raising more than just a few eyebrows. The concept was new for many people, for traditionally, the sorted secrets of the heart were no measure to the outward actions of the hands. But Jesus said, “Not so!” It’s the evil in our heart that keeps us from a holy God.
