SHREWD AS SERPENTS, SIMPLE AS DOVES

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, July 11, 2015:

wisdom 071115

 

JESUS said to His Apostles:

“Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; SO BE SHREWD AS SERPENTS AND SIMPLE AS DOVES.  But beware of men, for they will hand you over to courts and scourge you in their synagogues, and you will be led before governors and kings for my sake as a witness before them and the pagans. When they hand you over, do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say.  You will be given at that moment what you are to say.  For it will not be you who speak but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.  BROTHER WILL HAND OVER BROTHER TO DEATH, AND THE FATHER HIS CHILD; CHILDREN WILL RISE UP AGAINST PARENTS AND HAVE THEM PUT TO DEATH.  YOU WILL BE HATED BY ALL BECAUSE OF MY NAME, BUT WHOEVER ENDURES TO THE END WILL BE WILL BE SAVED.  When they persecute you in one town, flee to another.  Amen, I say to you, you will not finish the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”

Matthew 10: 16-23

* Are we willing to be handed over to the courts and scourge for His sake?

“People do not put new wine into old wineskins.  Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined.  Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

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

Reflections:

*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?

Saint of the Day:

St. Thomas the Apostle, pray for us.

Believe and be blessed,

Brother Mo
