Making rules for others

Matthew 23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

Religious people were and are famous for asking people to do things that they do not do. Jesus came to set men free, to give them life. Religion gives rules and burdens. Religion sends men, women, and children in to die with a bomb strapped around them while Jesus goes to the cross and dies for us!

As you teach and disciple people be careful to give them grace and not rules. Teach them what He did for them not what they must do! We do things because of who we are. We are never to do things so that we can be!

Pigs live like pigs and no matter how much you teach them against the mud they will go back. Sheep are not pigs and do not want to go where the pigs are.

Be careful not to tie big burdens on people that you aren’t really doing in your own personal life.
