I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflections for Monday June 11, Matthew 10:7-13

My Reflections:
Simple life equals simple problems, complicated life equals complicated problems.

Jesus is an advocate of simple living no doubt about it. This was proven in our gospel today when He told the twelve apostles as they were to be commissioned: “Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts; no sack for the journey, or a second tunic, or sandals, or walking stick.” (Matthew 10:9-10)

The best way to live our life is to live it simply and as we go ahead with our simple living we will also notice that there’s less pressure and stress on us there are also less human created problems. Yet not all of us are aware that many of the problems that we face now are created by our complicated lifestyles.

There’s a woman who can’t seem to dispose the old things in her house. According to her she will not dispose anything because each one has a sentimental value. After two years her house was already full of clutter and dirt brought about by the many unnecessary things that she owned.

Don’t we also love to own unnecessary things that only complicate and add clutter to our life?
