On Today’s Readings……

First Reading Isaiah 38:1-6,21-22,7-8
Gospel Matthew 12:1-8

Personal Reflection

In the first reading, we are reminded of our Fathers faithfulness as He fulfills the covenant made with David.  We learn that sin drains the life out of us, but when we reach out in repentance to God our Father, He forgives and gives us new us life.  Are we sorrowful for our sins? Do we examine our conscience daily?

In today’s Gospel we are reminded that a steadfast love is what is required of us not sacrifice. Jesus our Lord of the Sabbath and the Lord of All has come to write the laws on our hearts, so that we may live them to the fullest in His love. Are we imposing judgement or our laws on others? Or Are we loving and guiding others to faith by our deeds?
