Obeys and teaches.

“But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.” (MT 5: 19)

Again, we have a simple strategy recognized as the “greatest in the Kingdom of heaven”: “whoever obeys and teaches these commandments.” This key phrase contains the words: “obeys and teaches.” If we want to teach, we need to obey; only those who obey can teach because teaching without practicing will confuse and bring a lack of respect. 

“Teach me your paths, my God, and guide me in your truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
