Obey It, If It Is the Truth, Regardless of the Speaker

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 23.1-22.
What do you do when a horrible person speaks the truth? You heed it. Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples (Matthew 23.1), about this very thing. He said, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do” (v. 2, 3). Hearing someone we despise speak the truth, tempts us to reject the truth he has spoken. Do not do it. Do what Jesus said. Test yourself when listening to others, especially people you do not care for and see if you can accept what they say when they speak the truth.
