Woe to the Scribes and Pharisees1Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, 2saying: Deut. 33:3; Ezra 7:6, 25; Neh. 8:4, 8; (Mal. 2:7); Mark 12:38; Luke 20:45“The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for (Rom. 2:19)they say, and do not do. 4(Matt. 11:29, 30); Luke 11:46; Acts 15:10; Rom. 2:17–24; (Gal. 5:1; 6:13; Col. 2:16, 17)For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
Matthew 23:13-15 13“But Luke 11:52woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Mark 12:40; Luke 20:47; (2 Tim. 3:6; Titus 1:10, 11)For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.15“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
Matthew 23:23-29, 23“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Matt. 23:13; Luke 11:42; 18:12For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and (1 Sam. 15:22; Hos. 6:6; Mic. 6:8); Matt. 9:13; 12:7have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!25“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Mark 7:4; Luke 11:39For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 26Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.27“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Luke 11:44; Acts 23:3For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.29Luke 11:47, 48“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,

Notes taken from Cornerstone Chapel service on 2/21/21.
Let’s ask ourself do we have ways that are full of hypocrisy as brought out here. Let’s judge ourselves before we judge others. Let’s know ourselves so we will not judge others for all I’ve sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
When we realized that we are sinners just like everyone else we will speak in humility about things that we know are wrong in the lives of others. Judge not let you be judged with the judgment that you judge. Remember the Lord’s Prayer. Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
