Isaiah 58:9-14; Psalm 86; Luke 5:27-32

Forgiving others

In the Gospel today, the Lord is calling sinners to repentance. He is offering them new life and a way to break free from what enslaves them. The Pharisees say they want this too. But the difference is that Jesus wants to be close to sinners to give them this personal invitation to repent and receive a restored life. However, the Pharisees separate themselves and sit in judgement over others. We should get alongside people to help them, not separate ourselves and become judgemental.
