My First reading Reflections for Tuesday May 18: Acts 20:17-27

My Reflections:
In the first reading Saint Paul talks about the trials and difficulties in following Jesus—in spite of these odds Paul continued and he never allowed himself to be deterred by the trials. Until his death he remained true to his calling: To be a faithful servant of the Lord.

We must be faithful no matter the hardship and trials for there will be a reward for us if not in our lifetime it surely will happen in our afterlife. …
