Righteous vs. Unrighteous


We see The Right and Wrong Ways to Please God in Matthew 5:3-10 and Matthew 23:13-31.

Jesus called the unrighteous leaders seven things—hypocrites, children of Hell, blind guides, fools, whitewashed tombs, murderers, and snakes. Look at the contrasts with the Beatitudes.

RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #1
THE RIGHTEOUS……enter the kingdom of God, 
THE UNRIGHTEOUS…… keep people out of the kingdom of God.
RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #2
THE RIGHTEOUSare comforted,
THE UNRIGHTEOUS …are condemned.
RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #3
THE RIGHTEOUS…inherit the promised land, 
THE UNRIGHTEOUS ……are doomed eternally.
RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #4
THE RIGHTEOUS…hunger for holiness,
THE UNRIGHTEOUS ……are greedy for gain.
RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #5
THE RIGHTEOUS..…obtain mercy, 
THE UNRIGHTEOUS ..…are merciless.
RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #6
THE RIGHTEOUS…are pure in heart,
THE UNRIGHTEOUS ……are defiled in heart.
RIGHTEOUS VS UNRIGHTEOUS #7
THE RIGHTEOUS…are children of Heaven,
THE UNRIGHTEOUS ……are the children of Hell.

Be wise today and always – be righteous.
