Rom 2:1-11
Ps 62:2-3, 6-7, 9
Lk 11:42-46

“You, O man, are without excuse, every one of you who passes judgment.” - Rom 2:1-11

God tells us to appreciate one another’s presence around us in this reading.  We are all brothers and sisters in this world.  When we pass judgment, we do not accept each other or respect our brother or sister.  There is no reason to judge one another when we are all the same in the first place.  Living our lives with the same kindness, forbearance, and patience God has for us reflects the good within us all as we appreciate one another.

The reading speaks of judgment day.  God will come down and punish the wicked and reward the kind of heart according to his works.  We are told to be kind, just, patient, and forgiving.  When we live each day to the best that we can, that is all we can do.  Every day I try to say hi to someone I don’t know.  You never know, it could make their day a little better.

Everyone makes mistakes.  Life bears down on all of us from time to time.  We are only human, but we can try our best to respect each other.  We are here to spend time with each other and love one another.  In tough times, we are there for one another to comfort.  This kindness we show each other describes who we are as people, and can take us far.  Living a life with grace and compassion demonstrates how we are trying to live a life in accordance with God's will.
