They do not practise what they teach

abide2

Matthew 23:1-12 

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, 2’The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat; 3therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practice what they teach. 4

They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them. 5
