Some of the Pharisees and scribes questioned why some of Jesus' disciples ate their meals with unclean, that is unwashed, hands. Jesus let them know that: "Nothing that enters one from the outside can defile that person but the things that come out from within are what defiles. What is the motive for what we do?

Do we do what we do to defile people or bring life to people? We only know and we can't judge the motives of others. This week, may all that we do bring life to people and may we give other the same benefit -- they are trying to bring life to people. This way we will show the love of God which is in the world. God is So Good!! :-)
