Matthew 23:23-39
(23-36) Seven Woes to the Scribes and Pharisees
Jesus the Christ continues to rebuke the hypocrisy of the scribes and Pharisees, and in so doing we are urged not to follow their ways. We should be faithful in tithing money to God, but we should not neglect to show mercy to people. We must be inwardly righteous and not just outwardly righteous. We must make sure our physically alive bodies are not covering spiritually dead hearts.

(37-39) Lament over Jerusalem
Even though Jerusalem is guilty of rejecting God and murdering His prophets, Jesus remains compassionate toward them. He desires to gather the children of Jerusalem together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but they refuse to let Him do so.

Favorite verse: (27) “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness.
