Read Matthew 16 today.

This chapter has several stories that are worthy of considerable thought. As you read, do not read as if it is something to check off of your daily list of things to do. Linger in these stories for a while. Where do you see yourself fitting into them?
One of the messages of this chapter is related to “the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” It is a false teaching of which we are warned to beware. WIth what false teachings are you being confronted today? How do you discern which teaching is false? Are you prepared to stand firm in your faith?
Matthew 16:5-12 NLT
Later, after they crossed to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring any bread.
[6] “Watch out!” Jesus warned them. “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” [7] At this they began to argue with each other because they hadn’t brought any bread. [8] Jesus knew what they were saying, so he said, “You have so little faith! Why are you arguing with each other about having no bread? [9] Don’t you understand even yet? Don’t you remember the 5,000 I fed with five loaves, and the baskets of leftovers you picked up? [10] Or the 4,000 I fed with seven loaves, and the large baskets of leftovers you picked up? [11] Why can’t you understand that I’m not talking about bread? So again I say, ‘Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.’”
[12] Then at last they understood that he wasn’t speaking about the yeast in bread, but about the deceptive teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
