Denunciation of the Pharisees and Scholars of the Law

Luke 11:37-41

Jesus responds to his host’s criticism by chastising the Pharisees. What they do externally is no indication of their intentions. They may have clean hands, but do they have clean hearts? He tells them to open their hearts to the needs of others, and they will be truly clean.

Prayer: I pray that charity and justice be that which drives my every thought and action.
