Monday, 32nd Week in Ordinary Time
Ti 1:1- 9 / Lk 17:1 – 6
From the 1st Reading: Ti 1:1 -2
From Paul, servant of God, apostle of Christ Jesus, at the service of God's chosen people, so that they may believe and reach the knowledge of truth and godliness.
The eternal life we are waiting for was promised from the very beginning by God who never lies, and as the appointed time had come, he made it known through the message entrusted to me by a command of God, our Savior.
Gospel Reading: Lk 17:1 - 6
Jesus said to his disciples, "Scandals will necessarily come and cause people to fall; but woe to the one who has brought it about. It would be better for that one to be thrown into the sea with a millstone around the neck. Truly this would be better for that person than to cause one of these little ones to fall.
"Be careful. If your brother offends you, rebuke him and if he is sorry, forgive him. And if he offends you seven times in a day but says to you seven times: 'I'm sorry,' forgive him."
The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." And the Lord said, "If you have faith even the size of a mustard seed, you may say to this tree: 'Be uprooted and plant yourself in the sea,' and it will obey you."
"Thank you, Lord, for inviting us to live in the light." We give authentic LOVE to brothers and sisters by setting good examples of sincere acts of forgiveness. Going an extra mile as well of showing patience and compassion especially to the younger ones and those who are weak in faith, to keep them from going astray amid temptations or hardships in life.
As God's servants, we are called to be alert and obedient, and He shall work through us in making others follow likewise the right path. We possess a deep FAITH to overcome obstacles. There may be lots of life changing events which sometimes appear impossible to overcome, beyond our power to understand or resolve. We accept or accomplish however what seems to be impossible because simply but strongly, we believe in God's power. We are able to remove the block that blinds us. We are inspired to solve bigger problems, uproot burdens and move difficult situations or challenges towards channels for growth & strength.
At the end of each day, it is doing God's will, to avoid sin and not to lose hope. May we always trust in God's grace and power?
