My Gospel Reflections for Thursday September 16: Luke 7:36-50

My Reflections:
Why is it that some people are very quick to condemn those who are supposedly sinners? I for one is oftentimes like that I’m very quick at judging people but on second thought who are we to judge them? When we in fact are sinners too, we are quick to judge because we see them as public sinners so we condemn or judge them.

How about the private sins that we commit? Those sins that nobody else knows except us and God only most of the time those who are self-righteous are sinners too they only refuse to admit that they are for they are blinded by the very high self esteem that they give to themselves.

Regardless if we are a public sinner of private sinner Jesus wants us to have a renewal in our lives by means of humbly approaching Him and offering Him the best that we can do to advance His kingdom.

Most of the times repentant public sinners are the most effective bearers of Jesus love and forgiveness. For the reason that they wholeheartedly open themselves to God’s infinite grace of forgiveness.

What kind of sinner are we?
