Crooked Boss -- Don't Worry

Ezekiel 40-42, Matthew 23:1-22

You must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. Matthew 23:3

Authority is based on the office – not the person. Jesus calls for the people to obey their church leaders, but not to behave like them. We might be tempted to think that if leaders misbehave we can ignore them. That has never been the case. In fact, other than God, there is no perfect leader. The good news is that while those over us may be incompetent or evil (in our eyes) we know the one who has all authority, God, watches over us.
