Thought of the Day October 14, 2016

Today's Gospel talks about the need to avoid the leaven of the Pharisees. What was that? Hypocrisy! To be double faced or doubled tongued. Living a double life. Externally appearing to be  holy but internally being full of sin. Saying one thing but doing another. The hypocrisy of Judas: having decided to betray Jesus but siting at the table of fellowship. We say "yes" but we mean "no". To speak a lie rather than the truth. Paul accused Peter of hypocrisy when the latter ate with the Gentile converts but then withdrew because of the Judaisers. Where in my life do I find this leaven of sin, even in small things? Lord, I repent of any  hypocrisy in my life. Let me live in transparency and truth!
