FEBRUARY 4, 2010

1 KINGS 2:1-4, 10-12
As David's life drew to its close he laid this charge on his son
Solomon, 'I am going the way of all the earth. Be strong and show
yourself a man. Observe the injunctions of Yahweh your God, following
his ways and keeping his laws, his commandments, his ordinances and
his decrees, as stands written in the Law of Moses, so that you may be
successful in everything you do and undertake, and that Yahweh may
fulfil the promise which he made me, "If your sons are careful how
they behave, and walk loyally before me with all their heart and soul,
you will never want for a man on the throne of Israel." So David fell
asleep with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. David
was king of Israel for a period of forty years: he reigned at Hebron
for seven years, and in Jerusalem for thirty-three. Solomon then sat
on the throne of David, and his sovereignty was securely established

MARK 6:7-13
Then he summoned the Twelve and began to send them out in pairs,
giving them authority over unclean spirits. And he instructed them to
take nothing for the journey except a staff -- no bread, no haversack,
no coppers for their purses. They were to wear sandals but, he added,
'Don't take a spare tunic.' And he said to them, 'If you enter a house
anywhere, stay there until you leave the district. And if any place
does not welcome you and people refuse to listen to you, as you walk
away shake off the dust under your feet as evidence to them.' So they
set off to proclaim repentance; and they cast out many devils, and
anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.

Being sent to look after God's flock is quite challenging. It would be
ideal to be sent out in twos, but more often than not, the missionary
has to go at it all by himself or herself. The resources for the
mission will present themselves as necessary. Talk about complete
faith in Divine Providence!

Our Christian world was born out of this zealous missionary spirit. If
brave men and women didn't heed the call to be sent out, there
probably wouldn't be as many religious educational institutions,
congregations and organizations in existence. Maybe, there would be
fewer people who would realize for themselves that Jesus really loves

Sharing about God's love is the heart of our faith. In whatever we do,
hopefully we are relaying the reality of God actively participating in
human under takings. This same fervor inspired our missionary brothers
and sisters to cross oceans, climb mountains, and conquer jungles so
that the Word of God may be preached in all corners of the earth.
Every human being needs to hear that there is a God who looks after
them and never abandons them.

May we always ask for the grace to be missionaries in our own little
circles of influence. Hopefully, whoever we encounter in this life,
may they see the love of Jesus made real by our example. The
Scriptures come alive in our actions and how we treat one another.
Yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love!
