Psalm 119:11 (NIV)
11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Matthew 23:1-12 (ESV)
23 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, 2 “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat, 3 so do and observe whatever they tell you, but not the works they do. For they preach, but do not practice. 4 They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. 5 They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6 and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues 7 and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi (Rabbi means my teacher, or my master) by others. 8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers and sisters. 9 And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10 Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ. 11 The greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
From hiding the word in our hearts to wearing it on our sleeves for our vainglory. Who are you? Where does your faith live? What do you wear – faith or vainglory? What do you place your faith in? What’s the purpose of your faith?
Christ, again, turns everything upside down. Are you measuring yourself to God’s expectations? Or the worlds?
