What looks good may have a heart of evil

[en]Jesus said, “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like graves which are not seen, and the men who walk over them are not aware of them” (Luke 11:44).

What looks better than being dressed right, attending religious services, and doing things that mark us as decent, God-fearing people?

Yet how many religious scholars, ministers, and faithful followers withhold honor and encouragement from their wives, attention from their children, and love from their doctrinal enemies? Jesus knew what we often forget: What looks good may have a heart of evil.

[id]Tuhan Yesus menyatakan, “Celakalah kamu, sebab kamu sama seperti kubur yang tidak memakai tanda; orang-orang yang berjalan di atasnya, tidak mengetahuinya” (Lukas 11:44).

Selalu kelihatan baik saat kita berpakaian rapi, menghadiri pelayanan dan ibadah, dan melakukan segala sesuatu yang membuat kita dipandang terhormat.

Sementara banyak juga hamba-hamba Tuhan dan orang percaya yang terus menerus rendah hati. “Menyembunyikan” penghormatan yang seharusnya layak mereka terima. Tuhan Yesus sangat mengerti apa yang sering kita lupakan, apa yang kelihatan baik bisa memiliki hati yang jahat.
