Hypocrisy is alive and thriving at all levels and all domains today. Disdain for politicians and the clergy, often well founded, weaken our faith in humanity. Hypocrites are in all social settings, including the church. It’s a slippery slope. Jesus was above hypocrisy and fulfilled the work of the Lord without bounds or limitations, even on the Sabbath. Guard your heart from hypocritical tendencies and challenge your day to day activities to be inclusive. Refrain from racism and bigotry and live everyday with Jesus in your heart, to the glory of God.
