8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.
9 And he continued, "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions Mark 7:8-9 NIV
Jesus wasn't against all tradition, but he was against those who made
their traditions as important, if not more important, than God's Word.
Good traditions shine a spotlight on God's Word, move us to obedient
service, and help our hearts sing. They explain and reinforce the
teachings of God. God's Word should always be the focus, and tradition a
means of bringing that Word alive. Celebrate your traditions with the
prayer that Christ would be exalted. Change your traditions if they
become more important than God's Word.
