SEE BEYOND OUTWARD APPEARANCES
The phrase Sunday best has lost much of its meaning in our society today. Some lament the loss of people dressing up for church on Sunday; others think its a healthy sign that were as casual in a re gathered before the Lord as we are elsewhere. No ma er which school of thought on this topic we belong to, James would probably chas se us. True, James cri cizes the community that favors the rich and well-dressed while ostracizing the poorly clothed, but even more he cri cizes the making of dis nc ons, making choices based on criteria that having nothing to do with the reign of God. James might turn our a en on to the reign of God described by Isaiah, in which people are healed and the earth becomes ripe to bear fruit. Jesus today is focused on this reign of God, healing a Gen le man in a region hos le to his Jewish faith, not mindful of the mans origins or clothing or status or ability to repay. Isaiah, James, and Jesus in Marks Gospel all call us to look more deeply to find where the will of God needs to be done, and has been done, on earth as in heaven.
