Reflection for Monday March 6, First Week of Lent: Matthew 25:31-46

Gospel: Matthew 25:31-46
(Jesus said to his disciples) "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me. Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you? And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me. Then they will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs? He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me. And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

Reflection:
Do you want to attract God’s blessing upon you? You have to do what Jesus commands you in the gospel. Jesus tells you to give food to the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, give clothes to the naked, take care of the sick and visit the imprisoned.

Jesus is teaching us to discard the me first mentality for so many of us have this me first mindset. What would you feel if you do away with the me first mindset? You would be free from the bondage of greed and selfishness which by the way is an instrument of the devil.

Life in this world is temporary you therefore have to make worthy decisions and actions that would impact the lives of your fellowmen. Never be concerned of your own life for God will take care of it for you.

The gospel tells us that there will be judgment and separation amongst those who followed and did not follow the will of God. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
