The culture of today teaches us to push ourselves forward, get noticed, fight for our rights and to speak well of ourselves. However, the principle of the Kingdom of God is to humble ourselves and the Lord will exalt us in due time. This attitude is starkly different from the way of the world. As we study the Pharisees, we will learn how they preach but do not practice, do their deeds to be seen of others, and desire the greatest place. In light of this, we can examine our intentions and motives to see how they line up with what Scripture teaches.
