St John of the Cross, Priest, Doctor

Is 48 17-19, Ps1, Matthew 11:16-19

In accord with Jesus

Have you ever been associated with a person whom you could never please? No matter what you say, this person will always say the opposite. Or if you say it is fine on a warm sunny day, the reply might be, “but it’s going to turn nasty this afternoon.” If you have, then you’ll be able to identify with Jesus. No matter what he did or said he couldn’t please the Jewish leaders. Do I try to mould the ideas and values of Jesus to suit me, or do I shape my life to be in harmony with his commandments?
