Matthew 23:29-32. My Ancestors. 16 Oct 2023

Mat 23:29 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites!
You build the sepulchers of the prophets and decorate the tombs of the upright,
30 saying, "We would never have joined in shedding the blood of the prophets,
had we lived in our ancestors' day."
31 So! Your own evidence tells against you!
You are the children of those who murdered the prophets!
32 Very well then,
finish off the work that your ancestors began.

Which sins of my ancestors am I just repeating or completing?
I may imitate good things of my ancestors.


Jesus, please redeem me from inconvenient burdens.
