a reason to accuse him

September 10, 2018 6:00 am

“The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him.” (LK 6: 7)

Our mistaken patterns of interpretation in our inner dialog are often directed to the same goal: “discover a reason to accuse” him or her. We are “watching him/her closely” not to admire, but to accuse. When we become our spouse’s advocate, we change the way we watch.

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
