Serving the Word: 11th September


Luke 6, 39-42:
“How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye without looking at the beam in your own eye’? Take the beam out of your own eye first, and then you shall see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

We cannot believe that we are masters or specialists in the faith or behaviour of our brothers.
Nor can we give lessons to others without first looking at our own lives.
Jesus, who knows well the way human beings act and what lies within them, invites us today to review our own lives in order to detect the “beams” that, although it may seem a lie, we are incapable of discovering in ourselves, but we see them very clearly in the eyes of others.
Ask the Lord today for a generous, clean and positive look to discover all that is good and positive in others.
And praise the greatness of God for as much good as He has placed in each of the people around you.
Judge with humility and charity in the situations that present themselves to you today.
Good day to you.

Antonio Maria Sanjuan Marin, cmf
