I recently taught a lesson where Christ was condemning the Jewish leaders for enlarging the borders of their garmets and their phylacteries.
The orthodox jews wear a leather box on their forehead and arm with certain scriptures written in them.
Their phylactery contains scriptures from Deut. 6. My question to the class and here is what would your phylactery contain? Which scripture is most important to you and why.
I’m almost afraid to say it, but mine would probably have to be the same as the jews have in theirs. If I could just keep in mind (the forehead phylactery) and in my doing (the arm phylactery) just the first scripture I’d be so much better than I am.
