ARE YOU IRRESISTIBLE?
" ... even the dogs...? ? Mark 7:28
The joy and exultation of the man as he finally finds someone who can recognize as his equal is very difficult to put into words. The text we have here does a reasonable job of it, but I think it might help if we try to put ourselves in the man?s place and ask ourselves what this experience would really be like. For me, this recognition of a fellow human being is the recognition of an equal and co-heir with him to the life of grace. Their existence, their mutual self-giving and understanding was perfect as is indicated by the lack of shame at their nakedness. The wonder of this state of being is only surpassed by the fact that after the redemption we become even more blessed.

READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Numbers 23-25
AND THERE WAS NO SHAME BETWEEN THEM
These last words of today?s reading reflect a wonderful understanding of the beauty inherent in the sexuality of men and women. Man and woman were naked before each other and had no shame. This original innocence is in sharp contrast to the shame at their nakedness that they experience after disobeying God?s command not to eat of the tree in the center of the garden. What does it tell us about human sexuality?
