Jesus was talking to the Pharisees and the teachers of the law when he said, People look at you and think you are godly. But on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and evil. They were concerned about their reputations but neglected their hearts. I think it's easy for Christians to fall into this trap - they go to church and youth group, know their Bible, volunteer at kids church... But they also criticise and judge people, don't love their neighbours, don't help the poor... Jesus described these people as tombs that were decorated on the outside but full of bones on the inside.
Are you more concerned about doing the right thing so that you look good and holy to others? Are there some dead bones such as judgement and criticism that you need to sweep out? I want to be known for the sharing the love of Jesus, not for my faultless church attendance.
