Walking the Walk
Reflection on Mass Reading for September 13, 2017
“Stop lying to one another, since you have taken off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed, for knowledge, in the image of its creator.” (First Reading)
“Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied.” (Gospel) Today, we have yet another deep teaching from our loving God! The more you read the Bible, the more you love its author. One thing for certain in this Christian life we are trying to follow is that we will face rejection, endure conflict and either be harshly judged or even be the one who is judging. Through it all, we pray to have eyes that see the best in people, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that wants to recognize the face of Jesus as often as possible. There are simply many paths in this life to walk and all promise one thing or another. The path and course that Jesus placed before all of us differs in one monumental way for His walk promises eternal life. I’ll take that one.
