Reflection

Mass Readings: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/022419.cfm

Today’s readings are centered about respect for one another; seeing each one of us as an extension of heaven. It is not easy at times to maintain a mutual respect when you might consider another as an enemy. We are called to forgive and to have faith that the Lord is the only true being to cast judgement.

“Stop judging and you will not be judged.
Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give, and gifts will be given to you;
a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing,
will be poured into your lap.
For the measure with which you measure
will in return be measured out to you.” 

Luke 6:37-38

Last weekend, the beatitudes gives a moral compass to help us along our life, today’s Gospel reading feels more along the lines of guidelines to help us make better choices as we interact with one another. How am I showing my mercy, my humanity to others? Am I witnessing to the God-given Spirit within me?
