Reflection for July 7, Thursday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time; Matthew 10:7-15

Gospel: Matthew 10:7-15
Jesus said to his Apostles: “As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give. Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts; no sack for the journey, or a second tunic, or sandals, or walking stick. The laborer deserves his keep. Whatever town or village you enter, look for a worthy person in it, and stay there until you leave. As you enter a house, wish it peace. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; if not, let your peace return to you. Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet. Amen, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.”

Reflection:
Have you already shared Jesus using the internet?

Lady A, is an internet fanatic she would always share anything about herself on facebook. Simply to create an impression about how good her life is.

Some of us are actually like Lady A, we are fond of sharing our every activity even non- essential activities via the internet most especially on facebook. But have we shared Jesus or anything that relate to Jesus using the internet?

We have in the gospel the commissioning or sending off of the apostles. They were told by Jesus to share the good news of our salvation. They did their mission by advancing the teachings of Jesus and the many miracles that He did.

The apostles did not share anything about themselves it was always about Jesus and never about themselves. For a change why not think of sharing Jesus instead of sharing yourself using internet? If you share Jesus you will change and bless lives and in  the process you would also become a blessing for others. 

What do you usually share in the internet specifically on your facebook account is it always about yourself? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
