A Cup of Herbal Tea

“A Cup of Herbal Tea”
Luke 11:42 “in a snailshell”

“Woe to you Pharisees! You pay tithes of mint and of rue and of every garden herb, but you pay no attention to judgment and to love for God. These you should have done, without overlooking the others.”

Luke 11:42

Seeking to fulfill the law of Moses to a tee, calculations of one-tenth of the produce as tithe extended to the minutest kitchen herbs.

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. But these you should have done, without neglecting the others.

Matthew 23:23

Jesus came not to abolish the law but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). The end of the law is love, for God is Love (1 John 4:8).
