Reflection for Friday October 24, Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 12:54-59

Gospel: Luke 12:54-59
(Jesus said to the crowds) “When you see a cloud rising in the west you say immediately that it is going to rain–and so it does; and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south you say that it is going to be hot–and so it is. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

“Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate, make an effort to settle the matter on the way; otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the constable, and the constable throw you into prison. I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.”

Reflection:
What do we need today? We need interior renewal and cleansing because whether we admit it or not we’ve been living our lives in sin. This is the reason why we have problems in our lives! For a change; why not try not to commit sin? Why not invite Jesus to rule our lives instead of us ruling our lives which brings us nothing except more problems and sin?

Let us take a closer look at our lives, are we living our lives free from sin or we continue to live our lives enslave by sin? Nobody could answer this except our very selves; if we have no peace of mind and if we are always being bothered by our conscience this simply means that we need to avoid sin.   

But more often than not we find it hard to admit that we are sinful and this is brought about by our arrogance and high sense of ourselves. We put ourselves in a pedestal as if we are clean but nobody is clean among us; we have allowed sin to rule our lives one way or another.

Why keep on sinning when Jesus is clearly calling us now to a new life free from sin? - Marino J. Dasmarinas
