15 December, 2017: Judging Others


Friday of the Second Week of Advent

Reading: Is. 48. 17-19; Gospel: Mt. 11. 16-19

People often comment that they are able to see Jesus in the other. There could be many reasons to say the same. It could be because of the certain way they go around, or the way they help other people or the way they participate in the Holy Eucharist and so on. but the same opinion can cease to exist when the contrary occur or a variation of behaviour that is seen in them. So in the gospel reading we see “ when John the Baptist came, neither eating or drinking, they say he is possessed. When Jesus, the son of man came, eating and drinking they said “a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners. It is the same things that is taking place even today. We always should spent some time before making a judgment over other. Therefore let us think about the areas in our lives that we need to make a choice between the ways of God and the ways of the world while judging the other.
