Tuesday,15th Week in Ordinary Time

Tuesday,15th Week in Ordinary Time



Is 7:1 – 9 / Mt 11: 20 – 24.


Gospel Reading: Mt 11: 20 – 24

Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which he had performed most of his miracles, because the people there did not change their ways, "Alas for you Chorazin and Bethsaida! If the miracles worked in you had taken place in Tyre and Sidon, the people there would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I assure you, for Tyre and Sidon it will be more bearable on the day of judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to heaven? You will be thrown down to the place of the dead! For if the miracles which were performed in you had taken place in Sodom, it would still be there today!  But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you."



Have you ever had to trust in God to help you out of a sticky situation or a big problem?  Well, this was the predicament of Israel in front of so many enemies ready to attack her. God asked her to trust in him to bring down her enemies.  If at a single moment we trusted in God to deliver us and he did, how much will our faith in him grow after that experience.  We finally understand that God is a personal God who wants to intervene in our lives, if we allow him to.


But we should not take for granted the miracles God has done and continues to do in our lives. They should be the main reason we continue to repent of our sins and wrongdoings and desire to communicate with Him always.  As we do not want a God whom we now see and then we don't see, so God also does not want followers who are touch-and-go, lukewarm, and who approach him only when they need something from him.  To be a follower of Jesus means to maintain a daily dialogue with him through prayer and good works.  Let not God's goodness towards us be wasted by our turning our backs on him.  How many more are the miracles he wants to work in our favor if only we adhere to him as our Lord and Savior!

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!
