They Wouldn’t Walk The Talk

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Mark 7:6 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.’” O-bservation: The Pharisees took Jesus on once again when they asked Him about His disciples not washing their hands properly before they ate.

I was blind but now I see!” O-bservation: Jesus healed a man who had been born blind. Jesus picked up some dirt, spit in it, made mud, and put it on the man’s eyes. He told the man to go and wash in the pool of Siloam. When he did, he came back seeing perfectly. This infuriated the Pharisees because Jesus had performed the miracle on the Sabbath. They said, “How can He be of...
