The definition of Beware-be cautious and alert to the dangers of.
In this world, there are many things to beware of.
I don’t particularly like rats and snakes, no I hate rats and snake. And I am aware, or in a state of bewareness (a new word for being terrified) of them when I am anyplace they might be. We see a sign that announces; beware of the dog. (not my favorite sign either)
Please read the following verses.
38 As he taught, Jesus said, “Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted in the marketplaces, 39 and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. 40 They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.”
So much for the idea that we can always trust our religious leaders.
Jesus pointed out that the Jewish religious leaders were not following the guidance of the Book.
Now I am not advocating giving your religious leaders a hard time, simply beware.
Be Blest, Be a Blessing.
