Genesis 3: 1-8, Psalm 32: 1-2 & 5-7, Mark 7: 31-37

Emotions motivate

Jesus is like to us in all things except sin. Accordingly, he has emotions and displays them. Check out the man’s withered hand in Mark 3, the widow at Nain in Luke 7, the epileptic boy in Mark 9. The Lord’s emotions at the sight of the sick, disturbed and demonised moved him to heal the afflicted. So it is too in regard to the deaf tongue-tied man in our Gospel reading. Am I compassionate to the disabled, diseased and distressed?
