I criticized the Pharisees for enlarging their phylacteries. These were packets of scripture verses worn to be visible. This practice had turned into a ‘mine is bigger than yours’ contest. Can you see why I disapproved of this? Is there a modern day equivalent? How many items are on your prayer list? Have you encountered Christians who were involved in a ‘my prayer list is bigger than yours’ competition? But prayer is good. So is binding my word upon you. Yet the way you approach these things indicated your real motive and the condition of your heart. I told my disciples that if they offered their prayers in secret then their Father in heaven would reward them openly. This principle still applies.
