Refletindo o Evangelho
Jesus is positioned against the arrogant trial. This is the trial that despises and condemns. Judgement about someone is at least unwise. First, because every person is a mystery; is not in our power to meet you inside, what you think and what you feel. Second, because even though we may be witnesses of their attitudes, we run the risk of interpret them wrongly, often driven by bias or bad faith. We weren't raised to condemn, and Yes to love. That is why Jesus let us a message wise and more appropriate: "Take first the beam of your eye, and then you see well to take the post of your brother's eye." Task for life, since correct those flaws is not easy or automatic: requires intense and enduring spiritual work.
Feliz o povo cujo Deus é o Senhor e a nação que escolheu por sua herança! Dos altos céus o Senhor olha e observa; ele se inclina para olhar todos os homens. Mas o Senhor pousa o olhar sobre os que o temem e que confiam, esperando em seu amor, / para da morte libertar as suas vidas e alimentá-los quando é tempo de penúria. No Senhor nós esperamos confiantes, porque ele é nosso auxílio e proteção! Sobre nós venha, Senhor, a vossa graça, da mesma forma que em vós nós esperamos! (Salmo 32/33).
Happy the people whose God is the Lord and the nation that chose for your inheritance! The high heaven the Lord looks and notes; He leans over to look at all men. But you put the look on those who fear him and who trust, waiting in your love/death to liberate their lives and feed them when it's time to penury. In the Lord we wait confident, because he is our assistance and protection. About us come, Lord, your grace, the same way that in you we hope! (Psalm 32/33).
