9Then he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition! 10For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘Whoever speaks evil of father or mother must surely die.’ 11But you say that if anyone tells father or mother, ‘Whatever support you might have had from me is Corban’ (that is, an offering to God)— 12then you no longer permit doing anything for a father or mother, 13thus making void the word of God through your tradition that you have handed on. And you do many things like this.” (Mark 7:9-13, NRSV)
When we twist the word to fit our needs is not what God intended.
But aren’t we all guilty of this. How can we focus our lives on God and follow God’s word in our life?
We need to understand the underlying meaning God has for us and allow that to permeate our lives.
Love God and allow God’s love to shine through your life.
