Daily reflections: Monday: May 5/14

 

Gospel John 6:22... this Gospel points out that many people who were seeking Jesus are doing it for the wrong reason. They just had been fed by the multiplication of the loaves and fishes and come seeking more food, it would be nice to be fed without having to work for a living. Jesus sees through their thinking and says to them; “you are seeking me because you ate your fill of the loaves”. The people then asked Jesus, what then? And Jesus replied; “this is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” By this statement Jesus is telling the people that they have to grow up and mature and by doing so they will have the right motive for wanting to be faithful followers of Jesus and be will be willing to give witness to this way of life in their day by day living.

 

Reflection: you see a real congruence between what you believe in how you live?

 

Prayer: Lord Jesus, you challenged the people two thousand years ago to examine their hearts regarding their motive for following you. I hear your words for me today and moved by the Spirit I will make sure that is my love for you and God that inspires me to live the Christian life. Amen
