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 Tuesday November 8, Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 17:7-10

Luke 17:7-10
Jesus said to the Apostles: “Who among you would say to your servant who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’? Would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat. Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink. You may eat and drink when I am finished’? Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded? So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.

What characterize a meaningful life? It’s a life spent in service of God and our fellowmen. God brought us into this world not to be served but to served but to serve God is not easy it’s in fact tiring. Nevertheless, we have to serve so that we can continue the life of service of Jesus.   

But what does it require to become a true servant? We have to be humble at all times for this is the only way that we could become true servants.   But do we have humility when we serve? We oftentimes serve the because we want to look good in the eyes of our fellowmen.

 We oftentimes want to serve the poor and under privilege because we want to look good in the eyes of Jesus. But we cannot fool Jesus, we may fool our fellowmen but Jesus? We can never fool Him and we cannot hide from Jesus the true intent of our service for Him. 

When you serve God He surely will reward you. You may not receive His reward immediately but in His own perfect time He will reward you. Your reward may even not come in your lifetime yet it surely will come after your lifetime in this world. -  Marino J. Dasmarinas
