We should look in the mirror from time to time to see if are living in the joy and presence of the Lord. Or are we instead pouting? Or do we have an angry or unapproachable look on our faces? Glum or downtrodden? What had happened? What changed?

Did we fall back into sin? Did we become judgemental? Did we demand perfection in others? Our children? Our colleagues? Our family and friends? When we ourselves are far from perfect.

For if we live in communion and joy in the Lord. Then we live in His love and it fills our hearts. Just as His mercy is upon us, we too are merciful toward our brethren. We are able and ever so willing to share the joy of the Gospel with everyone.

Lord Jesus reign in my heart now and forever. Amen

First reading
Colossians 1:21-23

Not long ago, you were foreigners and enemies, in the way that you used to think and the evil things that you did; but now he has reconciled you, by his death and in that mortal body. Now you are able to appear before him holy, pure and blameless – as long as you persevere and stand firm on the solid base of the faith, never letting yourselves drift away from the hope promised by the Good News, which you have heard, which has been preached to the whole human race, and of which I, Paul, have become the servant.

Gospel
Luke 6:1-5

One sabbath Jesus happened to be taking a walk through the cornfields, and his disciples were picking ears of corn, rubbing them in their hands and eating them. Some of the Pharisees said, ‘Why are you doing something that is forbidden on the sabbath day?’ Jesus answered them, ‘So you have not read what David did when he and his followers were hungry how he went into the house of God, took the loaves of offering and ate them and gave them to his followers, loaves which only the priests are allowed to eat?’ And he said to them, ‘The Son of Man is master of the sabbath.’
