The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.

– Luke 16:14-15 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,

How do we justify ourselves? One of the things that the Scripture constantly emphasizes is that God is not like us. There are things that we think are important that make little difference to Him. Many Christians are quick to repent of lust or anger, but how often do we repent of greed? Be careful, for the love of money is the root of all evil.
