Today's word is Piety. I had to look it up. Piety is one of those words I've heard and I kind-of sort-of know what it means. I think. According to, Piety means "reverence for God or devout fulfillment of religious obligations."

Interesting definition because those two things aren't always the same. Which is one of the things that Jesus talked about a lot. Doing lots of religious things does not mean a person is God-fearing. Going to church every Sunday does not make one a Christian. I fear that too many people practice this sort of piety.

The piety that is a true reverence for God changes lives. And it makes us smarter. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." (Proverbs 9:10)
