Time for some housecleaning …..

In todays Gospel Mathhew 23:23-36   We read the following passage :

““Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
You cleanse the outside of cup and dish,
but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence.
Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup,
so that the outside also may be clean.”

Without the finger shaking, finger pointing etc.   lets look at the message …   As part of our human frailty and failings we tend to worry about ” What will the neighbors think “?   How does this make us look ?   Pride  is like many things. all things in moderation.   Too much pride is a sin, where no pride at all leads to some less desirable things.

If you look at your spiritual life like the cup, if you keep it clean, and take care of it,  your exterior will pretty much take care of its self.

Clean your spiritual house, the light will shine from within !
