Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Matthew 23:1-3

Thursday, October 27, 2011 – Proper 26 & Ordinary 31, Year A

Matthew 23:1-3Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat; therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practice what they teach.

Model Christ. Lead by example. Walk the walk. Or as a friend of mine said recently, “Walk the talk.” These are simple lines that flow from my fingers onto the computer screen. The bar is set high, but we follow a God of abundant grace whose love for us is steadfast.

Prayer: Gracious God, we want to follow you more nearly but we so often fall short. Thank you for your continued confidence in us. AMEN.
