Galatians 5: 1- 6

5:1 Stand firm, and do not be willing to be again held by the yoke of servitude.
5:2 Behold, I, Paul, say to you, that if you have been circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you.
5:3 For I again testify, about every man circumcising himself, that he is obligated to act according to the entire law.
5:4 You are being emptied of Christ, you who are being justified by the law. You have fallen from grace.
5:5 For in spirit, by faith, we await the hope of justice.
5:6 For in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision prevails over anything, but only faith which works through charity.

Luke 11: 37- 41

11:37 And as he was speaking, a certain Pharisee asked him to eat with him. And going inside, he sat down to eat.
11:38 But the Pharisee began to say, thinking within himself: “Why might it be that he has not washed before eating?
11:39 And the Lord said to him: “You Pharisees today clean what is outside the cup and the plate, but what is inside of you is full of plunder and iniquity.
11:40 Fools! Did not he who made what is outside, indeed also make what is inside?
11:41 Yet truly, give what is above as alms, and behold, all things are clean for you.
