Reflection for July 11, Saturday Saint Benedict, Abbot: Matthew 10:24-33


Gospel: Matthew 10:24-33
Jesus said to his Apostles: “No disciple is above his teacher, no slave above his master. It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, for the slave that he become like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household! “Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna. Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others I will deny before my heavenly Father.”

Reflection:
What is the mark of a true and faithful follower of Jesus? It’s the mark of obedience, a true follower will obey the command of Jesus to share His good news. But you  may say that sometimes it’s hard to share Jesus because the environment is not conducive for sharing Jesus. If this is the case when are you going to share Jesus?

If you wait for the right environment to share Jesus. That right environment may not come at all, so you will not be able to share Jesus?  As the apostles were commissioned by Jesus to share the gospel we too are tasked to do the same. Let us not wait for the right environment to share Jesus because every environment is right for Jesus.

No harm will fall upon you if you share Jesus because you are sharing the good news of humanity’s salvation. If you share Jesus you will be able to change lives and you will be able to give hope which many of us badly needs today.

The apostles treated with sacredness their commissioning from Jesus and as a result of it they became very successful in their mission. How about you? When are you going to share Jesus? Would you still wait for the right environment? It may not come, why not share Jesus now? And in the process be blessed by Jesus as Jesus blesses others’ lives though you. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
