Index


“Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

We were raised and educated at home and in school to not point our index fingers at others.  Until recently, I never felt so annoyed seeing people pointed their index fingers at me.  There were four people who had their fingers pointed at me.  And I never experienced it in my entire csa, dlsu, lst, and ecopy life.  I also find that weird though.  Weird that I never get to experienced point their fingers at me.  I am a bit shocked that there are really people who do it.  Didn't they learn that it is unethical to point at a person?  But one professor said that we should not feel irritated.  If a person is pointing at us, technically there are 2 fingers pointed at us and the three fingers point back at the person.

Similarly to our Gospel for today.  We must not be easy to blame others for mistakes because it could be that we are equally responsible.  And like our pointing fingers, it may also happen that we are more responsible for the mishaps.

The Gospel teaches us to be humble under all circumstances.  Humble in such a way that we realize our own mistakes and not doing inappropriate and excessive self-blame.
