He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?
– Matthew 15:3
In what ways might we be doing this today?
The Scriptures command humility. The modern traditions of our country tend toward pride. The Scriptures command generosity and charity. The modern traditions of our day encourage greed. The Scriptures speak of moderation and chastity. the traditions of our time promote gluttonous excess and immorality.
There are probably a lot of ways in which our modern traditions transgress God’s commandments.
