Your gospel today O Lord Jesus Christ is so tasty and testy at the same time.

The Lord said: woe to you Pharisees! You pay tithes of mint and of rue and every garden herb, but you pay no attention to judgment and to love for God. These you should have done, without overlooking the others.

Luke 11:42-44

How funny it is O Lord that we often “tilt the scales” in our favor just to accommodate our whims and selfish motives in fulfilling your will.

So many times we are like the Pharisees who have become so strict with the minutest details of the Laws like “tithes of mint and of rue and every garden herb” forgetting the very reason why these little things were given importance and emphasis.

Most of the time, we forget that the little things in this world are given prominence not because of its being small but for us to realize the impact they can have in our lives, that little things are actually the biggest things in life that when added can make up the bulk of who we really are.

Let us heed St. Paul’s warning in the first reading that you O Lord is impartial: everyone, everything matters to you. May we stope categorizing people and things as useful or not because everyone and everything matters with God. Amen.
