Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Matthew 23.23
There are many people who do everything their spiritual guide tells them to do, such as giving tithes, giving offerings, evangelizing, faithfully attending meetings, etc. However, they do not understand and omit the Word of God. They are unjust, steal, lie and cheat one another.
However, the Lord Jesus rebuked the Pharisees because they did not live what they preached. They gave their offerings and tithes in the Temple, but did not follow or practice the Law of God. On the contrary, they neglected the weightier matters:
Justice – represents God, however, so-called “Christians” are not concerned about it. They do not fear God, they do not empty themselves of everything and they like to judge God’s servants, hurting them and killing them with accusations, envious words, and so, this unfortunately causes them to be distanced from the Holy Spirit.
Mercy – represented by Jesus, who gave His life to save all those who believed in Him. You need this too, because those who reject it have no compassion for the souls that are suffering in darkness and without knowledge of the purposes of God.
Faith – represented by the Holy Spirit, is given to everyone and, especially, to those who believe in Him. Those who do not have faith, cannot live or share the power that the Holy Spirit gives to each one of us. And, when people do not have the Power of God, they are not encouraged to express their own faith, which results in pain and chaos in life.
In Galilee, Jesus taught these things with patience to those sitting on the grass, by saying:
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled – Justice.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy – Mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God – Faith. Matthew 5.6-8
Thousands of years before Jesus came to the world as man, God said:
Have you considered My servant Job? …. blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil. Job 1.8
Since then, He continues to show us His will so that we can achieve and live in Justice, Mercy and Faith. His Trinity in us.
