First, Contrary to the episode where the Pharisees and scribes come to Jesus, here it is Jesus who calls people to Him. Until now He continues to call us, but we always find excuses for not answering His call. Or sometimes if we dare to come it is especially to make us listen or to make us see. Coming to meet Jesus is first of all because we want to listen to him.

To comply with the prohibitions, especially food, is to fall behind in the Old Testament. Jesus has already come, He has perfected everything. Instead, let's pay attention to what comes out of our interior, the ungodly ideas from which arise: misconduct, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, fraud, debauchery, envy, slander, pride and excess.
