And now, Admonition.

Have you ever been on a trip and gotten directions from someone who you learned later, didn't know where they were going? I've done that. I've been that person. I've been the one giving the directions before. It's not a great place to be. It's not very comfortable.

Jesus accused the Pharisees in Matthew chapter 15 of being blind leaders of the blind, but there's a difference. Interestingly, as you look into that context between the blind who are following the blind and the leaders, you see the Pharisees were blind because they were intentionally refusing the word of God and the people following them were blind to the truth that the Pharisees were unrighteous. Jesus will tell those who would listen, don't follow the acts of the pharisees. The scribes follow the law that they teach, but not their lives. We have to be careful who we follow today.
