Your will not mine, your thoughts not my thoughts

YOUR WILL NOT MINE;
YOUR THOUGHTS NOT MY THOUGHTS

These words of Jesus are meant to challenge all of us who claim to be His followers today.
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In the Responsorial we acclaim this psalm. How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord, mighty God! My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. God's will not mine be done, Your thoughts not my thoughts for Your thoughts are far above mine.
 
In today's Gospel from Mark we see Jesus take on the Pharisees and some scribes for their hypocrisy. They insist on a strict observance of even the smallest purity regulations while at the same time ignoring the far more important commandments of God regarding justice and mercy. For Jesus it came down to an issue of self-righteously making human regulations far more important than the commandments of God. These words of Jesus are meant to challenge all of us who claim to be His followers today.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: If we listen to God's word with faith and reverence, it will both enlighten our mind and purify the hearts - thus enabling us to better understand how He wants us to love and serve Him and those around us in this world. We must remember that real purity comes from within the heart. This is God's will not ours!
