There is no doubt that sometimes Christians are the biggest hypocrites there is and sometimes we do not practice what we preach.
We have criteria in which God expects us to live, follow, obey and preach to others. Therefore how we operate is not just a testament of our faith but our understanding of God’s requirements.
Of course, we know we won’t be perfect in this lifetime, but there are some habits that, if tackled, could make a significant impact on our faith and the faith of others.
The question is what are some of the bad habits do we need help shedding? Here in the book of Matthew 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Why must we criticise others when we have behaviours that can also be critical. We need to remove the mote from our eyes before being critical of our brethren.
Being critical of how others praise and worship God, when we, are told in the book of Psalm 150:3-4 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
It should not matter if we praise silently through fervent prayer or a rock band concert. We each have unique gifts to communicate with our Lord and with others for his Kingdom. We must thank the Lord; that we can worship in so many different ways.
We must try our best to include each and everyone who is seeking God irrespective of who they are. And never allow ourselves to get God involved in the politics of the day as here in the book of Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. Amen
