“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs—beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people’s bones and all sorts of impurity. 28 Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness.
Matthew 23:27-28 NLT
In what ways do I try to appear better or more godly on the outside than I am on the inside? Am I willing to confess this to Jesus and to one other person I trust, fully embracing truth and authenticity?
