““‘These people honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. They worship Me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’”” Matthew 15:8-9
In Matthew 15, The Lord Jesus shows us that very often we choose to follow human tradition rather than The Word Of God. However, this must not be so, The Word Of God must take over all human tradition. In the account of Matthew 15, we see that tradition allowed not to help parents if what could have been used for parents was devoted to God. This might have seemed like an honor given to God, but love was missing. To honor God, we must have the spirit of love, love God, therefore follow His Commandments, and also love our neighbor, so in this case, honor our parents.
