Jesus can always see the state of our hearts.
He can see hypocrisy, He can see true contrition.
And He always has mercy for the repentant.
In this Gospel, Jesus again teaches the lesson of looking inward before judging.
Examining our own motives, examining the state of our soul – is difficult.
But that is what we are called to do during Lent.
Can you refrain from judging others?
Do you have the courage to see your own faults and failings?
