“’For they preach but they do not practice,’ (Matt 23:3).”
Daily Lent Reflection
In today’s Gospel, Matthew talks about the scribes and the Pharisees, recounting how they exalted themselves. This reading warns against attracting attention by outward signs – of power and religiosity.
Daily Lent Challenge
Today I ask myself if there are places in myself where I allow myself to feel superior. Can I open myself to be more humble and ask God for his grace? Can I act in the knowledge that we are all equal before God?
