Dirty Hands and Clean Hearts
Ever wonder why we do some of the things we do? Where do we pick up the traditions we hold and practice?
In Mark 7, the religious leaders encounter Jesus and question His disciple's failure to keep their traditions, like the ceremonial hand washing. While they wanted an answer, they weren't expecting was that Jesus would expose what was in their hearts!
Caution: Jesus' teaching is for us, as well. Washing our hands has value but this is not as important as having clean hearts!
