Now you, if you call yourself a Jew; if you rely on the law and boast in God; if you know his will and approve of what is superior because you are instructed by the law; if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth— you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?

– Romans 2:17-22 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

It is very easy for believers who have walked with Jesus for many years to expect others to do what they are not doing anymore. Paul deals with this attitude when he challenges the stewards of God’s laws with their own behavior. We may know a lot in our head, but people care more about what we are displaying with our life. What are your actions saying to others about what you really believe?
