2014 Lenten Devotional - Thursday, April 10

“Beware the yeast of the Pharisees, that is, their hypocrisy.” - Luke 12:1

Jesus had infinite patience with sinners, but no time for what He terms hypocrisy. It is a loaded word that means “pretender” or “actor”. The stage is the place for that, not the public arena. So Jesus excoriates the Pharisees for their pretense of great holiness with the length of their robes, their outer signs of fasting, their critiques of their neighbors…

Does our prayer life come from the heart or from a false yeast?
