Message from the Pastor - Tuesday, May 7, 2024: "Beware the Deceptive Nature of Greed"

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we gather in reflection today, I am reminded of the sobering words of Jesus in Matthew 23:25-26, where he denounces the hypocrisy of the Pharisees and exposes the deceptive nature of greed. Like whitewashed tombs, they appeared outwardly righteous but were filled with greed and self-indulgence.

In our own lives, we must be vigilant against the subtle seductions of greed, which masquerades as a virtue while secretly corrupting the soul. Let us not be deceived by the empty promises of worldly wealth, but instead, let us pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness.

May we be transformed by the renewing of our minds and the cleansing of our hearts, that we may walk in the light of God's truth and experience the fullness of His grace.

In Christ's love,
Brother Jesse
