The Pharisees and Scribes were proud of all the legal observances they made. They follow every little thing in the law so that they would be praised by men. But they missed the true intent of the law; which was to bring them close to God. Pride separates one from God.
It’s the same today. If all I care about is looking “good” to others then I’ve missed the entire point!
Lord, help me to care about my audience of one! And help me to not “worry” about anyone else.
