‘You shall be like a watered garden ...’

Dear Lord, what a lovely metaphor Isaiah uses to describe us when we treat those around us with love and respect. Even those of us who are not gardeners appreciate the difference between a parched and dry garden and one that has been watered. Then Luke tells us that you were criticised for eating with tax collectors and sinners but you said that the reason that you had come amongst us was for those very people.

It seems that self righteousness is our danger, for we don’t always recognise that we are in the tax collectors’ and sinners’ class. Help us to be aware of our parched dryness and water us with your love and help.
