Reflection for Wednesday July 23, Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time; Matthew 13:1-9

Gospel: Matthew 13:1-9
On that day, Jesus went out of the house and sat down by the sea. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd stood along the shore. And he spoke to them at length in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky ground, where it had little soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep, and when the sun rose it was scorched, and it withered for lack of roots. Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it. But some seed fell on rich soil, and produced fruit, a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold. Whoever has ears ought to hear.”

Reflection:
Whenever Jesus speaks everyone listens this is because whatever Jesus talks about is wisdom filled. Who wouldn’t want to listen to someone who imparts wisdom? We all want to listen to a person whose words are truthful and wisdom filled. 

How could we listen to Jesus in this modern time? First, is we listen to HIM by reading HIS life and teachings in the bible. Many of us have no more time to open our bible even for a short time that’s why we do not know Jesus deeply. Yet we have time for other worldly things that often times bring no value to our lives.

Second is we listen to Jesus through our solemn presence at Holy Mass. There are times that it’s so hard to focus our attention to this Holy Celebration because of the presence of others who do not pay attention to what is going on during Holy Mass. Nevertheless, if we desire to pay attention no matter the distraction we could still concentrate on the celebration.

Third is we go to the Adoration Chapel to stay there to be with Jesus. If we could spend time daily to watch our favorite program on tv, why can’t we have time to visit the Adoration Chapel even for a short while? There’s an enormous blessings that awaits us there because we listen to the wisdom of Jesus through our heart/s.

Spend more time with Jesus, listen more to Him and be prepared for the spiritual blessings that HE will shower upon you.
