Text: Luke 12:1-7
Hypocrisy. It goes hand in hand with legalism, at least by my observation. Evil bedfellows. Both suck the life out of all involved and are certainly not what Jesus had in mind when He ushered in the new covenant. Grace is the antidote, and grace is the foundation of the Gospel. Like the Pharisees, we can drift in our religion away from grace and miss the heart of God. Our passage is a reminder not to do that, as well as a wonderful reminder to reverence God and remember His tender care for us.
