For a shew

phariseesLuke 20:46-47 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts; Which devour widows’ houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

The short thought for today stems from Jesus’ condemnation of the scribes, for the reason that their religion, their position, and even their prayers, were done for a show – as opposed to genuine devotion to Christ. My prayer is that I’d examine and evaluate myself today, and see if my prayers, my “religion”, and my position is for a shew, or for true, pure devotion to God. Convicting though this morning.
