Sep 27 10.17 Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and his disciples, “Beware of scribes! Scribes and Pharisees occupy Moses seat, so obey and do all they say.

But dont follow their example, for they dont practice what they teach. They lay heavy burdens on mens shoulders, but are unwilling to lift a finger to help.1 They want men to see their works, so they enlarge their phylacteries and lengthen their garment fringes. They love front seats at banquets and synagogues. They love greetings in markets and being called Master. Dont be called Master, for One is your Master and you are all brothers. Call no one on earth Father, for your one Father is in heaven. Neither be called Teachers, for your one Teacher is Christ. The greatest among you will be your servant. Those priding themselves will be humbled; those humbling themselves will be exalted.2
