I have come to fulfill the law
Actions speak louder than words. Jesus today tells everyone that He is the fulfillment of the law, not just because He knows it and not just because He is the very source of the law. But because He acts in accordance with the law, in love and compassion for others. The pharisees knew the law, teach the law but do not practice it. Jesus invites us to become examples of his law of love and mercy. Let is do our best to fulfill the law and his commandments.
