Matthew 15:3-6. Excuses 9 Jun 2023

Mat 15:3 He answered,
'And why do you break away from the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?
4 For God said, "Honor your father and your mother"
and "Anyone who curses his father or mother will be put to death."
5 But you say,
"If anyone says to his father or mother:
Anything I might have used to help you is dedicated to God,
6 he is rid of his duty to father or mother."
In this way you have made God's word ineffective by means of your tradition.

What is described here, is building an excuse for not fulfilling an important legal duty.
Actually mankind, including me, is great in excusing them self.


Jesus, what are my excuses which displease you?.
