Numbers 15: 37-38 ” The Lord said to Moses, ‘Speak to the Israelites and say to them: Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel.’ “

These tassels were to be a visual reminder to obey the Lord’s commands, but in Matthew 23:5, Jesus accused some of the Jewish Leaders of making their tassels so extremely long as to make a show of their religious look.  He went on to say, “Everything they do is done for men to see…”  In many ways we can do the same, attempting to “look”  super spiritual when we’re in certain crowds.  God doesn’t look at our outward appearance…He looks at the heart. The Lord is saying to us –  trim your tassels …get rid of your religious spirit and focus back on Me.
