Jesus said it over and over - in judgment - condemning the religious leaders: "You Hypocrites!" When I was a young pastor, and would read Matthew 23, I would think, "man, I'm so glad I'm not one of those religious leaders! So glad I'm not a hypocrite!"
The older I get, the more I understand them. The less judgmental I feel toward them. I still don't ever want to be one, a hypocrite, but I can easily wander in that direction. Today I talk about my fear, and what I believe keeps me from it... enjoy!
