Gospel: Mark 2:13-17
"I did come to call the righteous but the sinners."
Today's Gospel speaks about the tax collector who during that time are considered traitors for they serve and work for a foreign power. Jesus did not condemn them but chose one of them to be His apostle.
Today, Jesus invites us to stop discriminating and judging people whether they are bad or good.
Though God sees whether a person is living righteously or not, whether we are good or bad, or rich or poor, He does not judge us unfairly and He will never withhold His love, mercy and salvation for those who welcome it and is open to change and be better.
