Let us beware of hypocrisy and help each other as much as possible, this is what we can draw from today's Gospel, this is what Jesus wants to transmit to us. Man bases his life on appearances, and Jesus wants to correct this. The Pharisees, good on the outside but bad on the inside, are the ones who do this. These people always distinguish themselves from others and always find fault with everything. Faced with this situation, Jesus makes an effective suggestion to help us, saying: "Give alms for what you have".

Life is mutual help and nobody can be self-sufficient. Let us remember the words of Pope Francis, during his visit to Madagascar a little over a year ago: "No one can say to you: I do not need you". Blessed are those who help and support each other, because helping each other is a form of love. But in this case, God expects us to give without expecting a return. So when we give or help others, let us remember that it is out of love for God because this other person around us, this person we are helping is the image of the invisible God. There is more happiness in giving than in receiving, and those who give joyfully please God. Blessed is the one who gives and distributes what little he has to others. He gathers an indestructible inheritance. Amen.
