You are Invited

Jesus continued His ‘Woe’ address, aimed at the religious leaders and their way of life and interpretation of the law:

Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the most important seats in the synagogues and respectful greetings in the marketplace. Luke 11:43

Today you are invited to consider how you enter a room, to whom you give honour and how you greet people when you meet by chance in the street. Are there certain people you honour more than others? Who are they? Why do you do this? Are there some you ignore? What makes you do so? How do you feel when you go into a room and are treated as an honoured guest; or ignored; or given a seat at the back of the room? What do you think about your hosts when they behave towards you in this way? Does it depend on who they are? Why? Try to be aware of how you react to the people you meet in the days ahead and honour them equally. How does that make you feel? How do they respond?

May God bless you with wonderful encounters with all those you meet in the days ahead.
