HAVE YOU BEEN OBEDIENT?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

wisdom 091515

In the days when Christ was in the flesh, HE OFFERED PRAYERS AND SUPPLICATIONS WITH LOUD CRIES AND TEARS TO THE ONE WHO WAS ABLE TO SAVE HIM FROM DEATH, AND HE WAS HEARD BECAUSE OF HIS REVERENCE.  SON THOUGH HE WAS, HE LEARNED OBEDIENCE FROM WHAT HE SUFFERED; AND WHEN HE WAS MADE PERFECT, HE BECAME THE SOURCE OF ETERNAL SALVATION FOR ALL WHO OBEY HIM.

From the book of Hebrews 5: 7-9

+++

Reflections:

  1.  Do we still pray?
  2. How and to whom do we pray?
  3. If Jesus prayed to His Father, should we also be praying like Him?

Saint of the Day:

St. Valerian, pray for us.

Keep praying,

Brother Mo

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field.  It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants.  It becomes a large bush, and the birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches.”

Jesus (Matthew 13: 31-32)

The seed sown among the thorns is the one who hears the word, but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the word and it bears no fruit.”

“Blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear.  Amen, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”

OUR UNBELIEFS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, July 03, 2015:

wisdom 070315

Thomas called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came.  So the other disciples said to him, “WE HAVE SEEN THE LORD.”

But Thomas said to them, “UNLESS I SEE THE MARK OF THE NAILS IN HIS HANDS AND PUT MY FINGER INTO THE NAILMARKS AND PUT MY HAND INTO HIS SIDE, I WILL NOT BELIEVE.”

Now a week later His disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them.  Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.”  

Then He said to Thomas, “PUT YOUR FINGER HERE AND SEE MY HANDS, AND BRING YOU HAND AND PUT IT INTO MY SIDE, AND DO NOT BE UNBELIEVING BUT BELIEVE.”  

Thomas answered and said to Him, “MY LORD AND MY GOD!’

Jesus said to him, “HAVE YOU COME TO BELIEVE BECAUSE YOU HAVE SEEN ME? BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HAVE NOT SEEN AND HAVE BELIEVED.”

-From the Gospel of John 20: 24-29

*Are we among the believers or the unbelievers?

*Do we continue to seek proof that He existed and risen from the dead?

*Do we see His image in others?

ON THE ROCKS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 25, 2015:

wisdom 062515

 

Jesus said:

“EVERYONE WHO LISTENS TO MY WORDS AND ACTS ON THEM WILL BE LIKE A WISE MAN WHO BUILT HIS HOUSE ON ROCK.  THE RAIN FELL, THE FLOODS CAME, AND THE WINDS BLEW AND BUFFETED THE HOUSE.  BUT IT DID NOT COLLAPSE; IT HAD BEEN SET SOLIDLY ON ROCK.

And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand.  The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house.  And it collapsed and was completely ruined.”

-From the Gospel of Matthew 7:21-29

+++

Reflections:

*Do we act on His words?

*Do we still listen to His words?

*Are we founded on solid rock?

++

Saint of the Day:

St. William of Vercelli, pray for us.

You have a rock in you,

Brother Mo
