Tuesday 25th Week in Ordinary Time

Tuesday 25th Week in Ordinary Time - Yr II

PROVERBS 21:1-6, 10-13
Like a stream is the king's heart in the hand of the Lord; wherever it
pleases him, he directs it. All the ways of a man may be right in his
own eyes, but it is the Lord who proves hearts. To do what is right and
just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. Haughty eyes and a
proud heart- the tillage of the wicked is sin. The plans of the
diligent are sure of profit, but all rash haste leads certainly to
poverty. Whoever makes a fortune by a lying tongue is chasing a bubble
over deadly snares. The soul of the wicked man desires evil; his
neighbor finds no pity in his eyes. When the arrogant man is punished,
the simple are the wiser; when the wise man is instructed, he gains
knowledge. The just man appraises the house of the wicked: there is one
who brings down the wicked to ruin. He who shuts his ear to the cry of
the poor will himself also call and not be heard.

LUKE 8:19-21
The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him but were unable to
join him because of the crowd. He was told, "Your mother and your
brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you." He said to
them in reply, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word
of God and act on it."

Jesus' mother and brothers were terribly frustrated because they
couldn't get through the crowd to meet and talk with him. Jesus jumped
up, parted the crowd and welcomed his mother with a great hug. That's
what you'd expect, isn't it? But no, Jesus instead comments, "My mother
and brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it."

Clearly Jesus did not mean to make little of either the importance or
the beauty of natural family relationships. Think of his concern for
his mother's welfare as he hung dying on the cross, "This is your
mother ... this is your son."

Jesus was simply making use of a very human situation to teach a
principle of spiritual living: blood ties and lineage lines do not
assure anyone of entrance into the kingdom of God. Mary's cousin,
Elizabeth, wondered, it is true, that the mother of her Lord should
visit her but she extolled Mary as blessed because she "trusted that
the Lord's words to her would be fulfilled." The Lord's disciples are
those who hear the word of God and act on it.

We pray ...
- for a deep and profound respect for life, especially for the unborn.
- for the healing of Myra.
- for all the prayer intentions in the MTQ Dailyprayer Diary.
- Birthday: Estrella De Leon
- In Memoriam (+): Judy Que
- for world peace and reconciliation.

Finally, we pray for one another, for those who have asked our
prayers and for those who need our prayers the most.

Have a good day!
