Jesus warned the disciples of the "leaven" of the Pharisees.  Leaven was a symbol for evil.

1.  Unbelief - The Pharisees did not accept Jesus as the Messiah.

2.  Hypocrisy - The Pharisees appeared on the outside to be righteous but inwardly they were evil.

3.  Temporal Values - The Pharisees were interested in present power and reward by pleasing men rather than eternal reward that comes from pleasing God.

Walk with the Lord and beware of "leaven"!!!
