Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

wisdom 081715

A young man approached Jesus and said, “TEACHER, WHAT GOOD MUST I DO TO GAIN ETERNAL LIFE?”

He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good?  There is only One who is good.  If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

He asked Him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, “You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

The young man said to Him, “All of these I have observed.  What do I still lack?”  Jesus said to him, “IF YOU WISH TO BE PERFECT, GO, SELL WHAT YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR, AND YOU WILL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN. THEN COME, FOLLOW ME.”

When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

-From the Gospel of Matthew 19:16-22

Reflections:

*Do we see ourselves as the young man?

*Do we wish to attain eternal life?

*Are we willing to give up our earthly possessions and desires to attain such?

*Are we willing to follow Jesus?

STORING TREASURES

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 19, 2015:

wisdom 061915b

JESUS said to His disciples:

“DO NOT STORE UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES ON EARTH, WHERE MOTH AND DECAY DESTROY, AND THIEVES BREAK IN AND STEAL.  BUT STORE UP TREASURES IN HEAVEN, WHERE NEITHER MOTH NOR DECAY DESTROY, NOR THIEVES BREAK IN AND STEAL…

FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE ALSO WILL YOUR HEART BE.

The lamp of the body is the eye.  If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light; but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness.  And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.”

-From the Gospel of Matthew 6: 19-23

+++

Reflections:

*Why are we busy storing riches on earth?

*Have we started storing riches in heaven?

*Where is our heart at present?

Saint of the Day:

St. Juliana Falconieri, pray for us.

Start storing treasures in heaven,

Brother MO
