JAN 8 – HOW?

01/08 Luke 11:41-44
So give to the needy what you greedily possess, and you will be clean all over. 42 “But how terrible it will be for you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest part of your income, but you completely forget about justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but you should not leave undone the more important things. 43 “How terrible it will be for you Pharisees! For how you love the seats of honor in the synagogues and the respectful greetings from everyone as you walk through the markets! 44 Yes, how terrible it will be for you. For you are like hidden graves in a field. People walk over them without knowing the corruption they are stepping on.”
These Pharisees were the most righteous – self-righteous – people on earth. How can I live my life properly? By doing what Jesus says- love one another and follow Him. Love the Lord Jesus, listen to Him and do what He says. Live the life and love the people.
