Matthew 15:32-16:12

“Watch out!” Jesus warned them. “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” v. 16:6

It took the disciples a long time to understand what Jesus was saying.  The key word in this passage is yeast.  To understand what Jesus is truly saying we have to understand what yeast does to bread.  Just a little bit of yeast affect the whole batch of dough causing it to rise.  Jesus is teaching that just a little bit of wrong teaching can and will affect many people.  Ouch!

Let’s break it down for today.  Maybe you don’t teach in a church setting.  However, you are teaching everyday by your words, actions, and attitudes.  If you have kids, you are teaching life long lessons with every word, action, or attitude.  If you have friends you are modeling something to them.  If you have a job, your attitude is saying something to co-workers and your boss.

Today, lets take Jesus words to heart and begin to think about our influence in the diferent arenas of life we venture.  May we tak advantage of the opportunities and represent Christ in all areas of our life.
