Oct. 17, 2017 (Luke 11:37-41)

Washing before eating was not just for cleanliness but a religious ritual that went something like this: water was first poured over the fingertips and then over the fingers, the hands, and the wrists. Then, the procedure was reversed. Jesus wasn’t against ritual but some people who made ritual more important than doing good acts for others. What kind of balance do you keep between ritual and service to others?
