SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Feb. 13, 2011
We may squirm in our seats when we reflect on today’s Gospel reading. Jesus tells us if we break even the least of the laws we will be the least in the kingdom of God. He warns us about anger leading to murder, about a lustful look leading to adultery, about the consequences of divorce and taking false oaths.
Jesus warns that breaking the big laws begins with breaking the little laws. He calls us to a higher standard in the first place, encouraging us to prune all sin from our lives.
