My Reflections for July 2 Monday of the Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time Matthew 8:18-22


My Reflections:
Up to where are we willing to follow Jesus? Would we follow Him if He leads us to care for the poor and the sick? Would we follow Him if He leads us to a life of poverty? Would we follow Him if He leads us to a life of sacrifice and perseverance?

These questions are very hard to answer for the simple reason that we are already used to a life of comfort and ease. But there were many and there are still many right now who left everything including all their treasures for the life of sacrifice and poverty with Jesus.

If we ask them how are they now after they’ve decided to leave everything behind just to follow Jesus? They will simply tell us that they’ve never been happier and that their present life with Jesus is the best status that they’ve ever had in their life.

A life with Jesus is always the best life even if it will lead us to poverty, even if it will lead us to care for the poor and the sick and even if it will lead us to a life of sacrifice and perseverance.  . . .
