In the reading the Lord speaks and encourages us to choose the truth, and trust in Him. In the Gospel Jesus is preaching to crowds and talks about the scribes and the Pharisees. He explains how they preach but do not practice what they have said. Jesus then explains the importance to following through with your word. He also speaks about how we are all children of God. We must humble ourselves to understand the truth, and reflect upon the words of Jesus in this Lenten season.
