“Jesus said to them in reply, ‘ Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do. I have come not to call the righteous to repentance but sinners.” (Luke 5:31-32)
I can totally see Jesus in this reading: MIC DROP. your move.
Okay well probably not because he was way better than we are but that is totally how I would have reacted.
The line is today’s gospel is preceded by someone asking why Jesus eats with sinners. Which you know what? is probably a really good question if you think about it.
It is love.
Jesus came to care for the weakest among us- those who’s hearts are broken. He came to sit and listen for a while, to learn what makes us stumble and to help us get back up when we fall. He came to eat dinner with those who feel unworthy or unloved. He came to teach us the way to Him and to help us get holy or die trying.
For the rest of lent, I want to keep this message in the forefront of my mind.
I am broken and I am a mess most of the time. But Jesus came to help me anyways.
Happy Birthday in Heaven Nana!
