Four Signs of Hypocrisy (from Genesis 38)

 1.       I put myself in situations that make obedience more difficult.
(Going places and doing things that only lead closer to temptation)

2.       I make promises I don’t intend to keep.
(Such as: “I’ll pray for you;” “I won’t share this” or “…in sickness and health, till death us do part.”)

3.       I make excuses for my sinful choices.
(“God knows I’m weak;” “Everybody’s doing it;” “There are way worse things;” “No one will know.”)

4.       I condemn others without a trial.
(Judging and accusing without hearing all the facts; feeling superior; not showing grace; not considering your own sin)
