Ti 2:1-8, 11- 14 / Lk 17:7-10

TITUS 2:1-8, 11- 14
Let your words strengthen sound doctrine. Tell the older men to be sober, serious, wise, sound in faith, love and perseverance. The older women in like manner must behave as befits holy women, not given to gossiping or drinking wine, but as good counselors, able to teach younger women to love their husbands and children, to be judicious and chaste, to take care of their households, to be kind and submissive to their husbands, lest our faith be attacked. Encourage the young men to be self-controlled. Set them an example by your own way of doing. Let your teaching be earnest and sincere, and your preaching be yond reproach. Then your opponents will feel ashamed and will have nothing to criticize. For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all, teaching us to reject an irreligious way of life and worldly greed, and to live in this world as responsible persons, up right and serving God, while we await our blessed hope — the glorious manifestation of our great God and Savior Christ Jesus. He gave himself for us, to redeem us from every evil and to purify a people he wanted to be his own and dedicated to what is good.

LUKE 17:7-10
Who among you would say to your servant, coming in from the fields after plowing or tending sheep, `Go ahead and have your dinner'? 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 told him to do? I don't think so. And therefore, when you have done all that you have been told to do, you should say, `We are no more than servants; we have only done our duty.'"

Today's Gospel imparts this essential lesson: we have no right to boast of anything before God. We know how the Pharisees had become so sure that their many good works had ensured for them some rights before God. They felt that they had acquired merits.

This is the meaning of Jesus' words: do not boast before God about our good deeds. When we have done what God wants us to do, remember that we have only done our duty. Let us pray for the grace today to act before God gratuitously, without waiting for a reward, and to serve him disinterestedly and unconditionally.
