Repent From Hypocrisy; Learn to Look Inwards
(Saturday 29th May 2021. Read Sirach 51:12-20, Psalm 19 and Mark 11:27-33)

“The scribes, and the elders came to him and said, ‘By what authority are you doing these things? Who gave you this authority to do them?” (Mark 11:27-28)

Our Gospel passage today continues from that of yesterday. Jesus had gone into the temple to cleanse it by driving out those who had practically turned the temple into a market place. In the words of Jesus, they had the Temple into a den of robbers – they were tactically taking advantage of (stealing from) those who were coming to the Temple to pray.

While Jesus was cleansing the Temple, the only thing on the mind of the chief priests and religious leaders was how they could destroy Jesus. For them, Jesus was nothing more than a trouble maker who had come to deprive them of their daily bread. Their eyes had become so blinded by money that they failed to see anything wrong with buying and selling in the Temple.

In today’s Gospel passage, the chief priests, while searching for a way to bring Jesus down decided to begin by asking who gave him the authority to do what He had just done. Where did He get such audacity? In other words, they wanted to know who ordained Jesus. Jesus, in response, asked them the source of John the Baptist’s authority; a question they couldn’t answer.

As we noted yesterday, the hypocrite sees that his house is dirty but instead of cleaning it, he rushes quickly to paint the outside. Another characteristic of the hypocrite is to attack and condemn anyone who tells him that his house is dirty. We gain nothing by fighting those who tell us the truth.

Since truth is bitter, whenever we are told the truth, it tends to sound like an insult to us. This is especially when it is coming from someone younger than us or someone we look down on. It is not every “insult” that is actually an insult; some “insults” are blessings in disguise.

No one is perfect. You are not always as good as you like to assume. Be humble, be willing to learn. As the book of Sirach today tells us: “I resolved to live according to wisdom, and I was zealous for the good, and I shall never be disappointed. My soul grappled with wisdom, and in my conduct I was strict; I spread out my hands to the heavens, and lamented my ignorance of her.” (Sirach 51:18-19).

The day you come to the conclusion that you have known all that there is ever to be known or that no one can ever correct you is the day you begin to die.

Let us pray: Lord Jesus, save me from the foolishness of pride. Amen.

Be Happy. Live Positive. Have Faith. It is well with you. God bless you. (Saturday of week 8 in Ordinary Time. Bible Study: Sirach 51:12-20, Psalm 19 and Mark 11:27-33).

Friends, when last did you appreciate God for life? When last did you take account of your purpose? Do you know your SPECIFIC purpose in life? Your greatest pursuit is not for wealth and self preservation, although that is important. Your greatest pursuit is identifying your SPECIFIC purpose and fulfilling it!

Finding purpose is serving others selflessly

When last did you visit the prison, hospital, grave yard? Avenue of Homelessness and hopeless? Until you take the first step, the next step will not be unvailed to you. As you take the step, you will eventually find your dancing style – that thing that resonate with you, with heaven and with the people to whom you have been sent to serve!

You are a child of destiny. God is not purposeless. Ignorance of your call is where restraint has no boundaries!

She survived a plane crash that killed over a hundred

Hear and watch the story of the woman who survived a plane crash unhurt. What are you here for? Why did you survived what others never lived to see another day? Who will miss you or remember you when you are gone to the other side? Apart from self pursuit, who are you adding value to? What value are you adding to your family, community, country, your nation or the nations of the world?take time to provide answers to these questions and do the needful by taking the first step, however blind that first step is, just take it, trusting God to give you the next step and th next step and the next step!….

A Part of a jigsaw puzzle

You are a part of the jigsaw puzzle that complete the human race pie. You are planted where you are for a reason and for a season! Dont waste time and resource! You have a part to play. Start playing it and stop complaining because every complain is an obstacle to your filling up the part of the puzzle. You will be asked to give account of your part of the jigsaw puzzle and not someone else. Get kicking!

Shalom!
