Wednesday of Week 13 Year 2

How many of us would want to commit evil? Quite likely we would want to do good. But sometimes we may be committing evil when we allow justice and integrity to be distorted or trampled on. We see justice and integrity being abandoned or misused, all for our personal gain or gratification. This is why today's reading admonishes us: "I hate and despise your feasts, I take no pleasure in your solemn festivals. When you offer me holocausts, I reject your oblations, and refuse to look at your sacrifices of fattened cattle. Let me have no more of the din of your chanting, no more of your strumming on harps. But let justice flow like water, and integrity like an unfailing stream."

We can put on a show or appear to be holy and participating in various religious events, but all this would not mean anything if justice and integrity is abandoned or forgotten. Let us be mindful and take care that justice and integrity is upheld in whatever we do.
