Daily Gospel Reading – Mark 7:14-23

14 When He had called all the people to Him, He said, “Listen to Me, every one of you, andb471 understand: 15 There is nothing from outside a man that by entering him can defile him. But the things which come out of the man are what defile him. 16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”

17 When He had left the people and entered the house, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. 18 He said to them, “Are you so without understanding also? Do you not know that anything from the outside that enters a man cannot defile him, 19 because it does not enter his heart, but into his stomach, and goes out into the sewer, thus purifying all foods?”

20 And He said, “What comes out of a man is what defiles a man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adultery, fornication, murder, 22 theft, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride and foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”
