My Reflection for Monday September 9, Twenty-third week in Ordinary Time, Luke 6:6-11

Gospel: Luke 6:6-11
On a certain sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the Sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him.

But he realized their intentions and said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up and stand before us.” And he rose and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” Looking around at them all, he then said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so and his hand was restored. But they became enraged and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

My Reflection:
Are you selective when it comes to making a positive difference in the life of your fellowmen? For example, if you see someone who is in dire need of your help, do you immediately help? Or you’re sometimes constrained by the events around you. 

To make a positive impact in the life of others is always in season there’s no exception on doing good. Jesus proves this point by healing a man’s withered hand amidst the protestation of HIS usual critics, the Pharisees.   
In the three years public life of Jesus, He would always heal without discrimination. He was not afraid even if there was threat of physical and verbal abuse His main priority was to impart His miraculous help to everyone in need.

Can you somehow be like Jesus?
