Matthew 23:27

"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness."
Matthew 23:27

Staying with our recent theme of being beautiful inside, this is an interesting scripture.  Christ is illustrating here that we often pretend to be good, and look good on the outside, but inside we're a lot different.  And I think it is really easy to fall into that sort of life... looking good, acting good most of the time, but not ever thinking about being good on the inside, or being confused about what we really think... just blocking that out and trying to be all external.  But, apparently, that doesn't work long-term, or God wouldn't have mentioned it here. :)  Today, let's work on behaving in accordance with our beliefs... or believing in accordance with our actions, whichever are better. :)  Let's work on being unified on the inside, and figuring out who we want to be, inside and outside.  Let's be whole.  That is an important step... hard to unify with anyone else or become part of a unified community until we get there internally.
