[Jesus 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.”

Matthew 23:1–12

  • It is not only a problem for the Pharisees but also for us Christians if we do not practise what we preach.
  • Only if we live what we preach can we testify of the gospel in credible fashion.
