Matthew 23:23 - 23:24

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg focuses on Matthew 23:23-24, where Jesus criticizes the Pharisees for tithing with meticulousness, but neglecting the more significant matters of the law, such as justice and mercy. Jesus emphasizes that even small sins are not a light matter, and people should not assume that all sins are equal. The discussion concludes with the importance of loving one's neighbor, while tithing should be seen as a means of helping one's fellow Christians rather than a mere religious obligation.
