Monday of Week 16 Year 2

Some of us think that we need to do a lot of things to win favour from God. Others think that they must behave in a certain way to gain God's blessings. Sometimes in our efforts to stay in good relationship with God, we may be neglecting our relationship with others. We think that our relationship with God is all that matters. But today's reading reminds us: "What is good has been explained to you, man; this is what the Lord asks of you: only this, to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God."

Are we acting justly towards others? Do we really love others just as God loves us all? Are we humble enough to admit our limitations and mistakes? If we are unable to love, forgive, seek forgiveness, reconcile, be loving and humble towards others whom we can see, then how can we claim to love God whom we cannot see?
