We all have a cup & we all fill it (our thoughts, words & actions). For many what matters most is what our cup looks like on the outside, for others it’s the inside, in some cases it’s the dirtier the better(yuk). As Jesus ministered in the various regions of Israel regarding faith & the kingdom of God He would challenge the religious leaders who were keeping a very close eye on him. Some things they had done well but this was at the expense of some very important things. Matt 23:13-39. “You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former (v23).”
It’s something Christians need to be continually doing as we fill & clean our cup.We are not immune from the dark side of life.Col 3:1-17.It is a battle.
