2023 Day 292 – Matthew 15; Mark 7

When questioned by the scribes and Pharisees about His disciples eating their food with defiled hands, Jesus gave them a straightforward answer. He reminded them that these ceremonial hand washing rules were man’s tradition not a commandment from God. “And he said to them, ‘Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’” Mark 7:6-7 ESV We must also be diligent in our study and following of God’s Word to make sure the things we are doing agree with His Will for us today.
