Today’s Gospel: Luke 11:42-46

This Gospel reading is rich in wisdom. Out of love, Jesus scolds the Pharisees and offers guidance. Jesus offers this same guidance today for each of us. In this Scripture I am reminded to look in the mirror before I place judgment on others for it is certain that I am not perfect and am falling short. I am also reminded that sometimes I may value the wrong things, such as a position or being acknowledged for accomplishments or things I do.

Ponder:

How can I focus on following God’s Commandments and spend less time judging others and more time monitoring my own actions? Do I do things to serve others or do I do things to serve my own ego?

Pray:

Dear Lord, Please help me to serve you above all things. Help me to keep you as my center in life so I may serve you and leave the judging of others in your hands. Please be present with me in all I do this day. Amen.
