no attachments


Daily reflections: Thursday: June 27/14


Gospel: Matthew 7:21... Jesus continues with this teaching about those who are sincere about living as kingdom of God people. He said, ”not everyone says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my father in heaven.”. Jesus made it very clear that too many religious people of his time were only giving lip service and were not really committing their lives to anything, yet they would mouth all the right words. Jesus tells the people then, and today, that his way is a way of living is very countercultural and if it is not that it is a sham.


Reflection: what are your thoughts on the teaching of Jesus?


Prayer: Jesus the teacher, first you showed us the way to live as kingdom of God people. You showed us community, compassion, reconciliation and healing, and it clear choice not to make attachments to things the world as our little gods. Amen
