ARE YOU TURNING PEOPLE AWAY FROM GOD?

Luke 11:42-44

Luke 11:42 “But tragedy is coming to you Pharisees! You give a tenth of your mint, rue, and every herb, yet you neglect justice and love for God! But you should have done these things without neglecting the others.
Luke 11:43 Tragedy is coming to you Pharisees! You love the best seats in the synagogues and elaborate greetings in the marketplaces!
Luke 11:44 Tragedy is coming to you! You are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without realizing it!”

The Pharisees considered graves and cemeteries as off limits because they did not want to be spiritually defiled by touching a dead body. Jesus told them that they were graves themselves, and unmarked — so anyone who touched them would be defiled. The very people in his society who were considered super-spiritual were in fact leading many to sin.

LORD, make us people who lead others to you, not turn them away from you by our sin.
