Washed Hands and Wicked Hearts

Passage: Mark 7:1-23

For years, bottles of Bayer Aspirin contained clumps of cotton, but, apparently, the Bayer Corporation concluded that the only reason it had continued to place cotton in their bottles was because of tradition. We can learn from this lesson that there are some traditions that need to go, because all they do is consume time, money, and resources but simply have no useful purpose.  In our passage today we're going to see where Jesus tangled with some of the Jewish leaders who cherished tradition above the Word of God.
