My Gospel Reflections for 14th Sunday in ordinary time July 5, Mark 6:1-6



My Reflection:
Envy and lack of faith is a powerful negative emotion that deprives us of peace of mind it also deprives us of unfathomable blessings from God. For example if we envy our neighbor because they have a higher status in life. We would normally try very hard to also match their lifestyle even at the expense of our own financial comforts.

When Jesus went back to His native place He was meet with scorn by His town mates because they envied Him. They were surprised of the miracles that He does they even questioned His miracles, they even belittled him.

They did this to Jesus because they know Him well as someone who was ordinary like them; they grew up with him they only focused on this aspect of Jesus’ life: His being human like them. They purposely closed their eyes on His God given abilities. Even if they were aware of it they refused to acknowledge the many miracles of Jesus.

What happened to them? Because of their doubt and unbelief Jesus was not able to perform mighty deeds for them. This is what happens to us also once we start to doubt on our faith on Jesus. We sometimes endeavor to do something we are full of motivation on the onset. Then due to our lack of faith on God and on ourselves we are suddenly enveloped with doubt thus, we fail.

Our faith and belief in Jesus will always be rewarded with something beautiful it may not come on the time that we want it. However, if we will be patient, if we will be willing to wait and never give up to work for it there will be an abundant reward that awaits us. …
