When the “doing” fails to match the “teaching”

Matthew 23:1-4 (NIV) 1  Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2  "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. 3  So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4  They tie up heavy loads and put them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them."

"We teach what we know; we reproduce what we are." —Robert Schmidgall
