My Reflections for Sunday December 4 Second Sunday of Advent Mark 1:1-8


My Reflections:
Humble people are simple they live simply without the unnecessary appendages of life. They shun publicity, they silently work in the vineyard of the Lord with competence and if they are given honor for what they do. They try very hard to deflect the honor and points to someone else as the one who deserves it.

John is a model of humility, simplicity and true discipleship let us look at how he lived. John was clothed in camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist. He fed on locusts and wild honey and he preferred to be alone in the wilderness.

He is also a model disciple; he preached repentance and forgiveness of sins without any ulterior motives whatsoever. He humbly preached and extolled Jesus as someone whom he was not even worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.

On this second Sunday of Advent let us ponder on the humility of John the Baptist as with our own humility if there is any. Let us think about how he humbly prepared the way of the Lord as to our own way of preparing others on the forthcoming birth of the Lord if there is anything that we are doing now.

There is still time for us to become humble and there is still time for us to create awareness about the forthcoming birth of Jesus. ...
