Jesus said some puzzling things! He pointed to the Pharisees, who were super-strick in their adherence to the law of God, and told his disciples that their righteousness had to exceed the righteousness of the Pharisees. What did he mean by that? Is there more than obedience?
Order Is Being Good and consider Jesus statement further.

I was talking some time ago to a young adult who had left the faith in practice of our Church of God tradition. He no longer keeps the Sabbath or the holy days. He no longer believes in eating only the clean foods. He didn’t see any need any longer to adhere to all ten of the Ten Commandments. He implied that he was sleeping with someone though he’s not married. He told me, though, what really mattered, he had decided after a lot of though, was to be a good person. It’s so much less restrictive and so liberating. You don’t have to go to church any more and act like a hypocrite. There’s no more struggling with the ugliness of church politics. No more being judged by a group of people who have a critical eye. No restrictive Sabbath observance. No getting off for holy days. Just treat people with respect and try not to hurt others. Contribute to society by obeying that much less restrictive law of the land. Donate to charity. Help people who need help. I know so many people who believe just the same way. Don’t you? And we really like talking to those people, don’t we, because they are nice people. They don’t want to hurt anybody. They’re responsible socially. And they make a contribution wherever they go to society and to their families.
