Do you know God? Do you know yourself?
 
GOD’S WORD IS LIVING AND EFFECTIVE
 
Do you know God? Do you know yourself?  
 
In the Gospel of Luke today: Jesus is sharing a meal and fellowship at table with a Pharisee who is quick to notice that Jesus does not observe the necessary washings before the meal. Jesus uses this situation to talk about external versus internal disposition. Jesus claims the Pharisees focus only on washing the outside but totally ignores how unclean the inside remains. What He is really saying is that what matters is what goes on within each person. There should be no dichotomy between internal and external of human life. God doesn’t want us to put on an act or a show but to be real. It is important to notice that Jesus does not say external ritual observance is useless or unimportant and not to be practiced. He says that for it to be authentic it must mirror what is going on with our heart.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Do you know God? Do you know yourself?
 
St. Paul lays down a challenge for us today. May we not be ashamed of the Gospel. It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. For the one who is righteous by faith will live. Let us give over our life to God, we are made truly clean inside and out!
