I will be careful to live a blameless life. When will you come to me? I will walk within my house with a blameless heart. I will set no vile thing before my eyes. I hate the deeds of faithless men. They will not cling to me. A perverse heart will be far from me. I will have nothing to do with evil. (WEB)

If you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? (WEB)

Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us  (WEB)

Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord has set over his household, to give them their food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his lord finds doing so when he comes. (WEB)

It won’t delay! Habakkuk 2:3

For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you didn’t believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. When you saw it, you didn’t even repent afterward, that you might believe him. (WEB)

Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” (WEB)

  • In this context, yeast represented the teaching and constructs of men alone, apart from God. Too often traditions become more important then hearing His still small voice. Who are you listening to today?

The Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing him, asked him to show them a sign from heaven. But he answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ In the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but you can’t discern the signs of the times.” (WEB)

Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. (WEB)
