Simon as he was returning from the field was forced to help Jesus, though unwillingly he decides to do it. (How far we move out to help others in need and what motivates us to do that?)
Where as Veronica, though weak and feeble (looking at the status of women in Jewish society) decides to help Jesus in the little way she can. The external circumstances does not affect her thinking or action she is moved by her inner conviction of love for Jesus. (Are we motivated by our inner convictions than the external forces in our efforts to help others?)
Where do we stand? It´s a journey that one will be able to make with conscious efforts and prayer.
