Reflection for Saturday July 26, Saints Joachim and Anne, Parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary; Matthew 13:24-30

Gospel: Matthew 13:24-30
Jesus proposed a parable to the crowds. “The Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everyone was asleep his enemy came and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off. When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well. The slaves of the householder came to him and said, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where have the weeds come from?’ He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’ His slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along with them. Let them grow together until harvest; then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters, “First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning; but gather the wheat into my barn.”

Reflection:
In the beginning of our lives the Good Lord sowed nothing but goodness into our being. Yet as we grow-up the many influence of this world tried to corrupt us and bring us away from the love of God. 

If for example, we are one of those who allowed ourselves to be corrupted by the devil and we allowed the devil to bring us away from the love of God. What are we going to do? Should we remain with the devil and allow him to permanently shield us from the infinite love of God? Of course not! We must do something to immediately be free from the shackles of the devil so that we could go back to the loving embrace of God.

If we decide to go back to the loving embrace of God, HE will never anymore ask us for the bad and evil things that we have done. What God will look for is our repentant heart/s that is very  much willing to ask for forgiveness.

If we are living in sin now, there’s still hope for us. For God will clean and heal us once again. No questions asked, God will simply wipe away all of our sins. The Good Lord  is patiently waiting for us to go back to HIS loving and forgiving embrace once again.
