- They were taking advantage of people and making long prayers for show and stealing members to make themselves look good (vs.13-15).
- They were tithing on things but not loving the people of God and choosing to do what was more convenient rather than what was right in God sight (v23).
- They had an outward appearance that was not from a sincere heart inside, their outside facade was not a true reflection from the inside (vs.25-28).
- Our Christian lives should be real inside and outside the church house and in front of all others who are watching how we say that we live for Christ.
No more breads as a common staple of each meal. (Biscuits and sausage gravy) No more cold drinks and candy bars, donuts, cakes, or anything pertaining to them. More drinking of just plain water and a lot of it. More greens and vegetables than I’d ever dreamed of eating. More meats and fish without the potatoes and all the rest of the fixings.
