Unknowing Hypocrites

The scribes and Pharisees truly believed that they followed God, but after showing that to be false, Jesus said,
“Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:
‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'”
(Matthew 15:7-9)
Let us be sure that we have not so embraced a tradition and mistakened it for following God, because we will be hypocrites.
Be sincere in worship and follow the commandments of God.
