2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.
The existence of people in authority who do not practice what they preach does not give us a license to do the same. All of us are accountable to God, first and foremost.
May God give us the strength to choose righteousness over comfort.
