A Collect to Practice What We Preach

Great teacher, whose life stood as an example for us all, help us to align our words and our actions, that what we speak and tell others to do, we would likewise do and so not live as hypocrites but as true citizens of your blessed kingdom, through you who reigns over all things with the Father and Holy Spirit in glory forever. Amen. “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat; therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practice what they teach.” – Matthew 23:2-3
