Reflection for Saturday September 10, The Twenty-third Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 6:43-49

Gospel: Luke 6:43-49
Jesus said to his disciples: “A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For people do not pick figs from thornbushes, nor do they gather grapes from brambles. A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but not do what I command? I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, listens to my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when the flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it because it had been well built. But the one who listens and does not act is like a person who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the river burst against it, it collapsed at once and was completely destroyed.”

Reflection:
Are you easily affected by the worries of life? For example, a severe sickness or a family issue, do you allow these episodes in your life to blow you away? Or you remain calm because you believe that ultimately God is in charge and He will take care of everything.

What is the advantage of having a deep friendship with Jesus? We remain strong even during the lowest point in our life. Yes being human we will be affected by the trials that we may encounter. But at the end of the day we will remain strong and we will certainly survive amidst these trials because we hold on to Jesus.

Life is never permanent, there would be episodes of loneliness and happiness there may even be times that the loneliness are far more than the happiness. But we survive because we have Christ in our lives. For if we have Christ nobody could bring us down not even the hardest problem that we may encounter.    

Let us therefore pray for a deeper encounter with Jesus, let us invite Him to come into our lives. So that we would always remain serene and calm amidst the trials and turbulence in our lives.

Would you want a deeper encounter with Jesus? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
