You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also? But give as alms those things that are within, and behold, everything is clean for you.
Can it be then, that we give out of nothing?
For you are like unmarked graves, and people walk over them without knowing it.
Yes then, even death can produce the semblance of life. The approval of men – even righteous men – mean nothing for our personal walk and salvation. People walk over them = engage them in ministry, come to them seeking godly advice, engage in daily activities – yet they speak to whitewashed graves.
Search my heart, that only out of You any measure of love/affection/effort/work is done. Fill up to abundance the empty grave of my heart, that from death Your life may pour out completely, in totality.
