It’s not about lists, about things to do and things not to do.  So what is it about? 

What’s such a big deal that it’s worth what we see in the first reading (2 Samuel), with Nathan risking his friendship with David, and his job - and maybe his life? 

Or in the Gospel (Luke), with the woman washing Jesus’ feet with her tears?  What is worth that? 

A relationship. 

With One who made you.  Who loved you before you were born.  And who has never stopped loving you. 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
