Serving the Word: 21st July

FRIDAY, JULY 21st, 2023

Matthew 12:1-8:

“If you understood what is meant by “I desire mercy and not sacrifice,” you would not condemn those who are blameless.”


A group of Pharisees are scandalized that Jesus and his disciples pluck ears of corn on the Sabbath, rub them in their hands and eat the grain.

Their eyes are only open to the norm and the rule. They are unable to see beyond it.

They do not know how to see that those people who pluck the ears of corn and eat the grain do so because they are hungry.

Always try to look with the eyes of God, which are eyes of mercy and know how to look beyond appearances.

They are the eyes that move the heart to sympathize with the labours and miseries of others.

They are the eyes that move the hands to put into practice love and healing for others.

Look today with the eyes of God and let them always move your heart and your hands.

Good day.
