And Not to Leave the Other Undone - Matthew 23:23

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone." - Matthew 23:23 There are some new, enlightened people who often criticize conservative folks for being too legalistic, whited sepulchres more interested in the outward appearance than the inward condition. Instead they say we should be more interested in social justice, feeding the poor, etc. This doesn't make you a better Christian if you leave the other undone. Why do you think that the other doesn't matter? Jesus said to do both - and not to leave either of them undone.
