What really matters is God’s judgment, mercy and fidelity. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier things of the Law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. [But] these you should have done, without neglecting the others.” Matthew 23:23

What really matters is God’s judgment, mercy and fidelity.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier things of the Law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. [But] these you should have done, without neglecting the others. Matthew 23:23

Second Thessalonians 2:1-3, 14-16, Psalm 96 & Matthew 23:23-26

The Mosaic Law ordered tithing of the produce of the land as described in Leviticus 27:30 and Deuteronomy 14:22-23. “All tithes of the land, whether in grain from the fields or in fruit from the trees, belong to the LORD; they are sacred to the LORD.” Leviticus 27:30

“Each year you shall tithe all the produce of your seed that grows in the field; then in the place which the LORD, your God, chooses as the dwelling place of His Name you shall eat in His presence the tithe of your grain, wine and oil, as well as the firstlings of your herd and flock, that you may learn always to fear the LORD, your God.” Deuteronomy 14:22-23

Whereas a tradition instituted by the Scribes included in this law even the smallest of herbs. The practice is criticized not in itself but because it shows the Pharisees’ preoccupation with matters of less importance while they neglect the weightier things of the law; “judgment and mercy and fidelity.”

Sometimes we get caught up in the smallest of things when it comes to following God’s Decrees and Traditions instituted by the Church instead of focusing on the things that really matter such as the Truth about fornication, sexual excess of lust, abortion, and the Sacrament of Marriage between a man and a woman.

The secular world wants us to bend to external pressure re-writing the Word of God to accommodate lustful feelings of immorality because the world’s population has grown to such proportions we are hearing the cries of the immoral beings seeking to fulfill their ungodly act of homosexuality. The LORD created man and woman to procreate and there is no arguing this point.

What we must realize is the Truth God instilled into mankind by His Word cannot be changed for convenient desires of lustful hearts of immorality. We must remain steadfast in living the Word of God seeking not to judge homosexuals, abortion seekers and infidelity acts against God’s Truth but we must pray for them fervently lifting them up to God’s Eternal Purpose of harmonic living. Let us turn to the things that really matter in life as the Truth God expects mankind to live. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to live what really matters in the Law You LORD have given us to follow in Truth. We for pray the people affected by the hurricane. We pray for strength LORD to be all we can for You. We pray for tolerance of all people. We accept Your Divine Will in all things. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
