THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
It is clear from the Gospels that Jesus found difficulty with the
Scribes and the Pharisees. He gives most of his attention to the
Pharisees. They are great pretenders. They pretend to be what they are
not. They assume the mantle of teaching the Law from Moses. It is wise
to follow their teaching. But, their action is totally at odds with
their teaching. They teach virtue but they fail to practice it. All they
do is designed to draw attention to themselves. They love to see people
bow and scrape to them in the street and the title "Rabbi" gives them a
We can distinguish between the outer self, the person we like the
world to see, and the inner self, which is our true self and carries our
basic values and attitudes. We can never allow the outer self to get out
of sink with the inner self. When we do we are fraud. Pretence is our
game. When we meet the outer self we do not find the inner self of the
true self. We put on a show to create an impression. We try to make an
impact because of our need for self-worth. But, the truth is that the
best way to satisfy our self-worth is to be our true self where outer
and inner self are in perfect accord. We are what we are, not what we
pretend to be.
