Once again Jesus comes up against the rule keeping Pharisees and challenges their thinking. Notice that Jesus does not condemn the Pharisees. Religious people then, and religious people today want it to be about following the right set of rules or having the right set of beliefs. But Jesus teaches over and over that it is about love, about relationships because it is about God. God is the aim. Relationship with God and with each other is about heart. If we want to be like Jesus we must first and foremost have a heart for God. Day by day – three things I pray – To see thee more clearly, Love thee more dearly, Follow thee more nearly – Day by day.
Scripture: Matthew 15:10-28
