“The Weightier Matters”
Forgive us, Lord, when we do good things but neglect the best things.
Forgive us, Lord, when we follow rules but neglect people.
Forgive us, Lord, when we do the best we can but fail to trust you.
Help us, Lord, to practice the weightier matters, the things that matter the most to you: justice, mercy, and faith.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. It is these you ought to have practiced without neglecting the others. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel!” (Matthew 23:23-24)
