By the way, I’m writing this one from lovely Cape Town…. I’m so blessed….
And Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.
“You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also?
“But give as alms those things that are within, and behold, everything is clean for you.”
I’ve always loved and been challenged by this passage, the hypocracy in us that wants to. “Seem righteous” in the eyes of others. But I’ve never noticed in Luke, that Jesus tells us to GIVE, and the outside will also be clean…
– GIVE of your surplus, to those who need
– GIVE your greed and wickedness to God
– GIVE the inside to the Maker of all – HE will clean all of you…
