Serving Our Community And World In Christ's Name

Daily Devotional

August 11, 2020
Matthew 15:10-11 (NIV) Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand. What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them."

Jesus used the Pharisees complaint about his disciples eating without ritually washing their hands as a teaching moment. He spoke definitively that what is consumed is not the deciding factor on what is unclean, but instead what comes from the human heart and is spoken aloud. God gives us the power to choose good by what we say and do!

Who do you listen to? Today will you listen to Jesus and pay attention to your thoughts and words even more than what you are eating?

May we choose the way of Jesus today by living with integrity in all of our choices and actions!
