Luke 20:46 CSB
"Beware of the scribes, who want to go around in long robes and who love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the places of honor at banquets.
Jesus continued teaching His disciples by parables even while the pharisees were plotting to ensnare and kill Him; and He clarified that the motive for many is self adornment and to be aware of them and not fall prey to their selfish thinking.
This passage reminds me that all I have is from and owned by the Lord, and I must guard my heart from ever thinking I’m something because I’m nothing except that which is of God.
Dear Father, thank you for your blessings to me even though i don’t deserve anything; and help me to maintain solid footing for You and not be pulled down by the false gods of this world.
