These verses have been running through my mind all week:
1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat:
3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
So whenever your favorite Pharisee/politician/designated role model says do this and their life is screaming “Oxymoron Am I,” we are to heed their advice in order to better our lives instead of making excuses due to them being horrific examples of “Captain Do Good.”
