THE TEST OF MEN
The text for reflection today is in itself a message loaded with deep meaning and draws our attention to the hearts and minds of men. It is an invitation to realise that we ought to look beyond the exterior and at what is inside.
Take a bit of time to read and ponder on it:
“Your talk shows your faults; it is like a sieve that separates out the rubbish. The way you think shows your character just as surely as a kiln shows any flaws in the pottery being fired. You can tell how well a tree has been cared for by the fruit it bears, and you can tell a person’s feelings by the way he expresses himself. Never praise anyone before you hear him talk; that is the real test..” (Sirach 27:4-7)
