His host was amazed to see that he sat down to eat without first performing the hand-washing ceremony required by Jewish custom. Then the Lord said to him, “You Pharisees are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy-full of greed and wickedness! Fools! Didn’t God make the inside as well as the outside? So clean the inside by giving gifts to the poor, and you will be clean all over. Lk11:38-41. This ritualistic observance is what the world calls religion. Christianity is about a personal relationship with Jesus where we keep our eyes open to what is happening around us,and as we look to bless and pour out God’s love on others we honour God through our life. If the world did this,we would live in the peace that God had always intended for us. Thank Jesus today that He showed us how to live and love others,so that by making His our way,we can all live a blessed life.
