JUNE 25

THEIR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM ME
Matthew 15:7-8 “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”
Jesus shouted at hypocrites. They are people who honor God with their lips, but their hearts are far from the Lord.
There are lots of outwardly religious folks.
“Gone to church all my life.”
“Sang in the choir since I was a teenager.”
“Have a perfect attendance record in Sunday school class.”
We should be involved in church activities, but sometimes we can get so caught up in attending services and doing certain activities that we forget the real reason we are doing these things.
Here’s a reminder.
Honor God with your heart, not just your lips.
