In today’s Gospel Story (Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23) Marks explains some of the rules of Judaism, and Jesus says, “You disregard God’s commandment and cling to mere human tradition”. The established religion of the day put the following of rules above all else. In doing so, he said they were disregarding God’s will and putting their own importance ahead of it.

In Jesus’ day as in our own, following Jesus is a life of discipleship leading to transformation. This journey means that we listen to what Jesus says, and do our best to live it, to live as we see him living, to be compassionate with folks as we see him being compassionate. Jesus teaches that everyone has access to the Father with and through him.There are no other requirements and, thus, there is no room for judging others based on our journey.
