Do attention of man more important for you than the approval of God

[en]Jesus reserved His strongest criticism for religious people who used their spiritual reputation to get social attention and honors. To such religionists Jesus said, “Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces” (Luke 11:43).

Then speaking to His disciples, He said of the Pharisees, “All their works they do to be seen by men” (Matthew 23:5). Jesus saw clearly into the practice of religion, which holds the opinions and attention of man to be more important and desirable than the approval of God

[id]Tuhan Yesus menunjukkan kritikkan-Nya yang tajam kepada agamawan yang menggunakan reputasi rohani mereka untuk mendapatkan perhatian dan penghormatan. Pada orang-orang ini, Yesus mengatakan, “Celakalah kamu, hai orang-orang Farisi, sebab kamu suka duduk di tempat terdepan di rumah ibadat dan suka menerima penghormatan di pasar” (Lukas 11:43).

Dan kepada murid-murid-Nya, tentang orang Farisi ini, Tuhan Yesus mengatakan, “Semua pekerjaan yang mereka lakukan hanya dimaksud supaya dilihat orang …” (Matius 23:5). Tuhan Yesus melihat dengan jelas bahwa dalam praktek-praktek keagamaan, pendapat dan perhatian dari manusia menjadi lebih penting dan lebih dicari daripada perkenaan Tuhan.
