Mark 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Jesus said that there were people following Him that were insincere. They said they loved Him, but they didn’t really. Their heart was far from them. They talked but didn’t walk. Jesus quoted Scripture and let them know that they were hypocrites.
We want to be careful to be what we say we are. We want our actions to line up with our speech. We can’t present one face to the public and be another in private.
If we do not live out what we say then for sure our spouse, our parents or our children will know the truth. That will make it very difficult for them to trust or respect us. So remember, just saying it doesn’t make it so.
