Proper 24/Ordinary 29 – Hebrews 5:1-2

From Hebrews, 5:1-2 – Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness.

We are all subject to weakness, even the high priests among us. This passage reminds me of how important it is for us to be slow to judge others, being forever mindful of our own shortcomings.

Prayer:

Understanding God, we are all related as your children. Help us to look at each other with the understanding often reserved for blood relatives. AMEN.
