“In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds, ‘Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext, recite lengthy prayers.”
- Where do you see scribes?
- Since what we recognize for good or for bad in others is also in us, how do you see characteristics of a scribe in yourself?
- Take a moment now to commune with God about what you find out about yourself and be attentive to God’s response.
Heritage word—“In prayer we respond to God’s goodness and provident care.”
