Do Not Be Like the Pharisees

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Matthew 23 today.
Matthew 23 shows the grievous error of the mind of the Pharisee. Notice verse 4. Jesus said, “For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers” (Matthew 23:4).
This pharisaical problem is very much alive in the world and in the church. It is not unusual to hear people placing demands upon others without helping even in the slightest with those burdens. Has someone done that to you? Have you done that to someone?
