1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-27; Psalm 84; Luke 6:39-42
Why do you see the speck in your neighbour’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Man has the tendency to notice the faults of others more easily than his own personal faults. Therefore the Gospel invites us to self-examination. We must learn to help ourselves before we can help others better. Before we spread the Gospel to others we must ensure we acquaint ourselves with the word of God. “No one can give what he does not have”. So, St. Paul urges us never to be self-satisfied rather we must always strive to attain heavenly goals through constant training and formation.
LET US PRAY
Lord God, please give me the grace to walk in dignity before you. Give me the ability to desist from anything that can cause me to sin against you. Help me to use accurate judgment, and let your Holy Spirit guide me into all righteousness so that I can be fit for your kingdom.
