A Parable About Inner Purity
In this message, we’re going to be looking at a parable about inner purity. When you have guests visiting, you probably make an effort to clean your house. But imagine if you only cleaned up the outside of your home. You wash the windows. Maybe you even put on a new coat of paint.
However, upon entering, your guest sees that inside of your house is a mess. There is trash everywhere, and everything is just disgusting.
This is what Jesus talks about in the parable we’re looking at this week. People often work on the exterior things to make themselves presentable, but they miss the inside entirely.
