Matthew 15:12-14

Then the disciples came to him and asked, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?" He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit."

Insight: There are many people that we interact daily that seem like they have it all together. They may be better spoken, have more money, a nicer car but those things end up not making a difference. If we are developing a relationship with Jesus, we are growing our roots down to last. This scripture causes us to reflect on what we are focusing on and what is truly a value in eternity.

Prayer: God I pray that you give me a Godly perspective. I need help in prioritizing my relationship with you over my family, my job and other friendships. Help me realize what will matter at the end of my life and give me peace that some of the other things I worry about don't matter as much as I  give them credit for.

James
