My Reflection for Thursday June 26, Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time, Matthew 7:15-20

Gospel: Matthew 7:15-20
(Jesus said to his disciples) “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?’ Then I will declare to them solemnly, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.’

“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined.”

When Jesus finished these words, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.

Reflection:
Where is your life anchored today? Is it anchored on this world or anchored on no one else but God? It’s very tempting to anchor our life to this world. For who would not want riches, influence, power and the like? We would be hypocrite if we say that we don’t want these all.

Yes we do want these all, however what will happen to us if we become worldly? If God simply becomes just an option for us where we go when we are in need of HIM and when we are not anymore in need of HIM we don’t go to HIM anymore.

the reality of our life is we were not created to become permanent citizens of this world. We are mere temporal passersby in this world, sooner or later we will leave this world and all the worldly possessions that we have accumulated. Where would we end-up in the afterlife if we only live for this world?

It’s always better if we accumulate our life with God, this means that we worship God and we do what HE wants us to do. But this is not always the case we often times worship HIM only and we don’t do what Jesus wants us to do. 

Therefore we continue to become slaves of this world.
