We are all created equal

Thursday of week 24 in Ordinary Time

Luke 7:36-50 

Be an example to the believers in the way you speak and behave, and in your love, your faith and your purity. 

What we see is not what God sees.  We see through our eyes, but God looks through the heart.

The readings stress on God's realities rather than men's: the young disciple as a model for others and the woman who bathed Jesus' feet with her tears and dried them with her her. And Jesus said, "Go, you faith has saved you."

We are accustomed to seeing people with our eyes.  It's easy to judge them based on what they have.

Second, we think we know the person whom we judge. There's no way we can enter into their hearts.  Only God can.

We believe that we are all created equally - in the image and likeness of God.  No one is created better or lesser than God himself.  Have we seen God lately in others?

Second, we believe that we are all meant for heaven.  There, we shall be who we really are - sons and daughters of the Lord.  There is no heirarchy nor popularity in heaven.

Third, we are all called to love as God loves us.  There is no lesser or greater love when we love as God loves.
