My Gospel Reflections for Thursday: July 31, Matthew 13:47-53

Matthew 13:47-53
Jesus said to the disciples: “The Kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind. When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away. Thus it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.” “Do you understand all these things?” They answered, “Yes.” And he replied, “Then every scribe who has been instructed in the Kingdom of heaven is like the head of a household who brings from his storeroom both the new and the old.” When Jesus finished these parables, he went away from there.

My Reflections:
At the end of our lives we will face our maker and we will be judged to where we will go. This is the reality of life; no one is exempt from this. If we lead our lives according to God’s will for us we will be in heaven. If not we will be in hell, that’s what the church has taught us.

The desire of God is for all of us to be with Him afterlife, that’s why the church is always there to teach us how to go about it.

Unfortunately some of us still choose the path that leads to nowhere. …
