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.
