A Show? - Saint James Church

A Show?

Featured Video Play Icon

Have you ever thought that religion is a show that, if it’s good enough, might attract God’s attention and let people know just how holy we are, too? I am sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but God is not interested in the show and even less so if we “do the show” so others will see just how religious we are. There was a time when folks referred to me (Pastor James) as “the religious guy” when I was hanging out in Starbucks! I thought that was pretty cool. I wonder now if it was cool at all. Was it because I was an example of loving and accepting as God does? Or was it because I laid out my religious books and tried to “look holy?” I hope it was the first, but all of us have to be careful lest we cross over to looking holy so others will admire our holiness! This weekend we look at Matthew 6:1-18 (focus on Matthew 6:1). (I shared some thought about it on my personal blog if you’d like to take a look.)
