Wis 2:23—3:9 / Ps 34:2-3, 16-17, 18-19 / Lk 17:7-10

WISDOM 2:23—3:9
Indeed God created man to be immortal in the likeness of his own
nature. The souls of the just are in the hands of God and no torment
shall touch them. In the eyes of the unwise they appear to be dead.
Their going is held as a disaster; it seems that they lose everything
by departing from us, but they are in peace. Though seemingly they
have been punished, immortality was the soul of their hope. After
slight affliction will come great blessings, for God has tried them
and found them worthy to be with him; after testing them as gold in
the furnace, he has accepted them as a holocaust. At the time of his
coming they will shine like sparks that run in the stubble. They will
govern nations and rule over peoples, and the Lord will be their king
forever. Those who trust in him will penetrate the truth, those who
are faithful will live with him in love, for his grace and mercy are
for his chosen ones.

LUKE 17:7-10
Jesus said to his disciples, "Who among you would say to your servant
coming in from the fields after plowing or tending sheep: `Come at
once and sit down at table'? No, you tell him: `Prepare my dinner. Put
on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink; you can eat and
drink afterwards.' Do you thank this servant for doing what you
commanded? So for you. When you have done all that you have been told
to do, you must say: `We are no more than servants; we have only done
our duty.'"

We can never accomplish anything good if it were not for God's graces.
We rely on His divine Providence for the many things we ourselves
cannot achieve or provide. The Lord never withholds His assistance.
And yet, we are not passive in receiving His blessings. Being co-
workers with God means responding to His graces every moment. We are
His instruments. In His masterpieces, we are the artist's brush.

Let us offer to Him all our works, prayers and sacrifices in our
morning prayers, and in the evening, offer Him once more the fruits of
our harvest through His Providence.
