Weightier Matters of the Law

Matthew 23:23–24

John Calvin writes, “The Law is kept only when men are just, and kind, and true, towards each other; for thus they testify that they love and fear God, and give proper and sufficient evidence of sincere piety.” Commitment to justice, mercy, and faithfulness demonstrates commitment to Christ (James 2:14–26). Thus, our care for the poor and oppressed must be as evident as our concern for doctrine. What sacrifices are you making to help the poor and marginalized?

For further study:

Zechariah 7:8–14

The Bible in a year:

Isaiah 29–30

For the weekend:

Isaiah 31–34
