Observing him carefully

October 29, 2016 6:00 am

“On a sabbath Jesus went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully.” (LK 14: 1)

“They were observing him carefully,” not to imitate Him but to have reason to judge Him. People will find what they are looking for—when they look for the good in another person, they will find it; when they look for a pretext for accusation, they also will find it. When we try to meet Him every day in the daily readings, we want to “observe Him carefully” to experience His love and follow Him.

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
