It is not necessary to have lived in Jesus’ day in order to understand His concerns. Our times include vivid illustrations of the very things that troubled our Lord. Religious performance.

As we go deeper into His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ words turn our attention from all the circus-like pizzazz of performance to the simplicity of prayer and fasting, two disciplines all-too-rarely done His way for His glory. Let’s seek out His counsel so we can carry out His instructions.
