This week the religious leaders (Pharisees) are the primary conversers with Jesus. They believe they have caught him and his disciples out. They didn’t ceremonially wash before they ate.
Jesus replied strongly. He pointed out that what happens on the outside does not defile us, but what comes from the inside can.
Our heart condition is the key to truly following Christ. The Pharisees were keeping rules and regulations but not honouring God and others.
God cares about our hearts. The priority is that the inside should impact the outside.
