My Reflection for Saturday November 23, Thirty-third Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 20:27-40

+ + + + + + +
My Reflection:
What will happen to us after we die? Would we still know each others name if we see each other in heaven? Would we still feel the same if we see each other in heaven? We don’t know because we haven’t died yet.

But one thing is sure there will come a time that we will have a physical death. Would it be the end? No, we who follow Jesus believe that our physical death is only the beginning of eternal life with Jesus in heaven.

The Sadducees do not believe in the resurrection. That’s why they asked Jesus the question about the seven brothers who married the same woman. So they asked Jesus, to whom will she belong during resurrection?

Jesus gave them this meaningful answer, “The children of this age marry and remarry; but those who are deemed worthy to attain to the coming age and to the resurrection of the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage (Luke 20:34-35).

Many of us (Although in a different manner) have the same concern with the Sadducees, what will happen to you and me after we die. Are we not stretching our minds too far by having this thought? Instead of being concerned with the after life or the resurrection.

Why don’t we focus our attention to our present life? Do we live it according to the will of Jesus for us? If we live our present life according to the will of Jesus, we need not worry about the after life or resurrection. ...
