Pharisees questioned

Gospel of Mark Ch 7 v- One thru Four

1 Now when the Pharisees with some scribes who had come from Jerusalem gathered around him, 2 they observed that some of his disciples ate their meals with unclean, that is, unwashed, hands. 3 (For the Pharisees and, in fact, all Jews, do not eat without carefully washing their hands, keeping the tradition of the elders. 4 And on coming from the marketplace they do not eat without purifying themselves. And there are many other things that they have traditionally observed, the purification of cups and jugs and kettles [and beds].)

People always look for the worst to happen making comments about rain over sunshine or excess versus Eternal Life. There are rules that come with Tradition that allow for Christ’s forgiveness to expel a past that got in the way of living by a state of grace. Jesus time seemed to forget about this fact that to forgive is to love God fully. The Pharisees and scribes sought to bully Jesus into acting as they do while Jesus knows their hearts that have escaped the true meanings of living for God without question pointing out this fact in every situation they have encountered. We too want to put aside wrong over right as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, true? Jesus knows your heart and seeks your wrongs to be given forgiveness pointing your soul in the direction of living for Him first where we share this Redemption we live to accomplish honoring His mercy forever. We seek God in every situation knowing that He can and will direct the paths of the believers to know what peace truly is without question for you’ll hear Him speak His Authority. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty we pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

I am a poet obedient to Christ,
