DANIEL 9:4-10; PSALM 79; LUKE 6:36-38
“Yours is the integrity, Lord; ours the shame”. The first reading makes us to understand that God never fails to forgive us despite our sins. Whenever we ask him for forgiveness He never fails to pardon our offences. Precisely because of this, today’s psalm prays that God should not to treat us according to our sins. Similarly, Ps.130:3 says “if you oh Lord should mark our guilt; Lord who will survive”. God does not mark our iniquities we too must be careful not to mark the offences of others. Beloved, we must learn from this attribute of the Father. Let us forgive others and we too will be forgiven. When we judge others we should be careful that the measure we use on them is the same that will be applied to us. It is very easy to judge others but when step into their shoes we realize that uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.
Let us pray
O God, who have taught us to chasten our bodies for the healing of our souls, enable us, we pray, to abstain from all sins, and strengthen our hearts to carry out your loving commands. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
HAPPY NEW MONTH !!!
