Because we have an election coming up next year, we hear many politicians claim to uphold the law and criticize those who do not keep the law. Thinking on this, the following verses came to mind:
"For they preach, but do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger.
- Jesus in Matthew 23:3-4 (The Holy Bible, English Standard Version. Good News Publishers/Crossway Books)
"Now, therefore, why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on the neck of the disciples that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?"
- The Apostle Peter in Acts 15:10 (The Holy Bible, English Standard Version. Good News Publishers/Crossway Books).
