Reflection for Tuesday February 28, Eighth Week in Ordinary Time; Mark 10:28-31

Gospel: Mark 10:28-31
Peter began to say to Jesus, “We have given up everything and followed you.” Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come. But many that are first will be last, and the last will be first.”

Reflection:
What are you capable of giving up for Jesus? Could you give up your riches? Could you give up your life of hedonism and worldliness? Perhaps this is quite hard to do if you do this abruptly.

But if you try to slowly detach yourself from your life of worldliness and you begin to trust and love Jesus more than this world. You’ll also see a marked improvement in your life, slowly also there would be less human created worries, stress and problems.

This is for the reason that you’ve decided to embrace Jesus more than this world. Jesus tells us in the gospel that if we give up this world and choose to follow Him. We would receive more than this world could offer.

Try it even for only a short time and see the big improvement that it will create in your life. Slowly cut and cut cleanly your relationship with your friends who have not brought any good into your life. Then begin to develop deeper relationship with your family. 

Slowly detach yourself from your vices and anything that is impure. After doing so develop a real relationship with Jesus: Attend Holy Mass more often, pray more often and start to develop a habit of reading your Bible.

Never be afraid to give-up this world for Jesus for this is the best decision that you could ever make in your life. Marino J. Dasmarinas
