SUNDAY’S GOSPEL – November 5, 2017

Author: David Dziena ~ October 24, 2017


Matthew 23:1–12

In this Sunday’s Gospel, the Pharisees take the best seats in the house to show how important they are. They act only if it benefits them, but Jesus tells his followers to follow only what the Pharisees preach, not what they do. They burden others and do not help. Jesus, however, teaches his people to focus only on God. He tells them to be humble in all their actions. This week is a great opportunity to examine how much good we do for other people and how our good behavior brings glory to God.
