In today's Gospel reading from Luke 11, Jesus was invited by a Pharisee to dine at his home. The Pharisee was amazed to see that Jesus did not observe the prescribed washing before the meal. Jesus sain to him, "Oh you Pharisees! Although you cleanse the outside of the the cup and the dish, inside you are filled with plunder and evil. You fools! Did not the maker of the outside also make the inside?" Our outside is for people to see, but our inside is for God to see. So cleanse your inside first and then the outside if you have the time. Jesus said to his disciples, "Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." So focus upon yourself and never mind what other people see or think.
