Reflection for May 24, Tuesday of the Eighth Week in OT; Mark 10:28-31

Gospel: Mark 10:28-31
Peter began to say to Jesus, “We have given up everything and followed you.” Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come. But many that are first will be last, and the last will be first.”

Reflection:
A worldly man had a dream, in his dream he saw Jesus calling him to leave behind his life of sin and follow Him. The morning after the man seriously thought about this dream and he was in a dilemma as to how he will survive once he decides to follow Jesus. Night time came and he had a dream once again and he heard Jesus told him not to worry for He will provide for Him.

With these encounters with Jesus, he decided to leave behind his sinful life and he decided to follow Jesus. After which he was never in want of anything he was very well provided for by Jesus.

It is hard for many of us to decide to follow Jesus for the reason that it is not financially rewarding to follow Him. But life is not about storing-up treasures in this world there’s more to life than accumulation of earthly wealth. Life is also about following the footsteps of Jesus and about making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Never would we find the real meaning of life by following the dictate of this world. It's only in following Jesus that we would discover life and its true meaning.

Why not slowly shift the orientation of your life from worldliness to a life in the company of Jesus? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
