Scripture Reading: A Woman with a Disabling Spirit
I don’t know about you all, but the one personal accusation that I dread the most is being called a hypocrite. Most rational and thoughtful people cringe at the thought of being accused of being a hypocrite. So we strive from day to day to practice and to preach with the greatest of care and consistency. You know, preaching is not just something that ministers do. We all, at various times, preach and we have our opinions. We do the best that we can with with acting consistently with what we preach, or what we profess, or what we say, so as to not be accused of being a hypocrite. So imagine being called a hypocrite by Jesus himself.
