Praying from Matthew 16:11. Themes: Misunderstanding, Warning, Hypocrisy.
Dear Lord, help me to understand and perceive the true meaning behind your words. May I not be distracted by the superficial things in life, but instead focus on the deeper truths you are trying to convey. Protect me from the influence of those who may lead me astray, and help me to discern the truth from falsehood. Grant me the wisdom to recognize the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees in my own life, and to avoid it at all costs. Amen.
Verse: How is it that you don’t perceive that I didn’t speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
This is a Command. The verse is a warning to beware of the teachings and influence of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
