The integrity of men is measured by their conduct, not by what they profess. – Junius
Though supposedly“enlightened” men of God, the priests and Pharisees abused the people of God. Jesus called them HYPOCRITES!
An old adage we’re all familiar with is the saying “a man is only as good as his word.” But the average person can talk a good game, with enough variables (excuses) to cover themselves in case of unforeseen issues. God sees right through our “chatter” and looks right upon the heart. In truth a person is only as good as their conduct or actions. It is easy to desire to do better or say we are going to do better, but results prove the point. The 'proof' of the pudding is always in the eating. A person of integrity and righteousness does what is right, noble, and praiseworthy at all times, no matter who is around, for they know God is always watching.
“Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – Matthew 7:21
P.S. - Don't forget tomorrow (Saturday) is our monthly Church clean-up day. Come on out at 9AM and pitch in. Many hands make light work!
