Luke 11, 42-46:
“Woe to you Pharisees, who pay tithes on mint and rue and all kinds of garden plants, while you overlook the law and the love of God; woe to you, who are like unmarked graves, which people tread over without knowing it.”
Like the teachers of the law and the Pharisees, we too are inconsistent when we scrupulously observe the small details, which certainly matter, and neglect the fundamental things like justice, mercy and faithfulness.
So today Jesus reminds us not to forget what is essential.
And he also reminds us to take care of our inner self which is more important than our image.
He reminds us of our sins of omission and encourages us to always do good and to do what God expects of us.
To keep in mind what is fundamental and essential and to get down to work today.
We still have a lot to do and a long way to go.
Courage! To take care of the interior, the soul and the heart.
Yours and that of others.
