Matthew 15:1-9: Man’s Traditions or God’s Commands?

Human beings like to start traditions. Whether it is from our culture, family or country, we all make traditions. Many of these traditions are neutral, but sometimes they become negative. Whenever a tradition begins to become more important than God’s clear instructions, then we are in trouble. This is exactly what Jesus faced when some of the Jewish religious leaders confront Him about a tradition. His response has much to teach us today.
