Reflection for Monday September 19, Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 8:16-18

Gospel: Luke 8:16-18
Jesus said to the crowd: “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

Reflection:
Do you sometimes put a facade of who you truly are or do you sometimes live a double life?

We cannot hide our real identity no matter how hard we try to hide it for there will eventually come a time that we shall be unmasked. For example, we pretend that we are good but deep inside we are not.

Our pretension will work to a certain extent we may even fool our fellowmen with our pretensions. However, there shall come a time that we will be unmasked no matter how hard we try to conceal our true identity. 

In the gospel Jesus tells us: There is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Indeed no secret is kept secret forever and every facade that we put forward will eventually be exposed.

No secret last forever most especially dark and hideous secrets, therefore it’s better to be transparent and to show who we really are. If we have dark secrets let us be honest and after that let us move forward to live a new life worthy in the eyes of the Good Lord. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
