I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

Reflection for Thursday November 17, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, Religious; Luke 19:41-44

Luke 19:41-44
As Jesus drew near Jerusalem, he saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If this day you only knew what makes for peace–but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.

What will happen to us if we will not listen to meaningful advice?

For example, Carlo who is a drug pusher and addict was counselled by his wife to stop. But Carlo ignored his wife’s advice after a few months Carlo was caught by the police and was imprisoned for life.

When we ignore meaningful advice something that we don’t like will come upon us. We will not know when will it come to us but it will certainly come to us. So what are we going to do if someone is giving us meaningful advice? We have to listen and reform so that nothing untoward would happen to us.

Why did Jesus weep over the people Jerusalem? This is for the reason that they did not listen to the messengers of God and to Jesus who wanted nothing but their welfare. They shut their eyes and ears to God as if God did not exist.

As we continue with our journey in this world there would be people who will give us meaningful advice. People who will tell us to disengage from a friend or people who will tell us to stop doing wrong.

We have to listen to them not because they know better than us. We have to listen for the reason that God sent them to us so that we could straighten our crooked lives. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
