Today begins something new where the Verse of the Day will address subjects in both the Old and New Testaments as the Spirit moves me instead of sticking to a subject…

Matthew 19:7-9

7 “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?” 8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard.

7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: 8 “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’”* (* Isaiah 29:13) Matthew 15:18-23 Jesus is calling some Pharisees and teachers of the law from Jerusalem hypocrites and states why by quoting Isaiah.

Matthew 13:18-23

18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time.…

Matthew 13:14-15

14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.* (* Isaiah 6:9,10) Matthew 13:14-15 Here we have Jesus quoting Isaiah to answer…
