Matthew 23:1-12

Jesus tells the disciples and the surrounding crowd to listen to what the Pharisees say, but not to do what they do. They speak the truth but do so for all the wrong reasons. They do not care that they put unnecessary burdens on the people. They want nothing more than to draw attention to themselves.

This passage speaks to me in a way that makes me very uncomfortable. I know that I tend to behave in a similar fashion by putting myself first, making myself the center of attention. Please, Lord, gift me with a large dose of humility.
