Scripture… As We Live It #97

Posted by on Mar 14, 2010 in as we live it, scripture | 2 comments

This is the 97th passage in “Scripture… As We Live It“:

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. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long wear their nice suits and clerical robes, and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues church buildings and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi Pastor by others. (Matthew 23:4-7 re-mix)
