Grateful and Thankful 😊 #Blessed #Thankful
In today’s Gospel (Mt. 22, 15-21), Jesus teaches us that what really matters is not so much public opinion as God’s opinion. Many of us are so focused on what others say, or what we say, that we forget what God says. We must make room for God, and not leave Him out of the picture. Are you living in a “selfie” world? Is your life all about I, me, and myself? If so, the life you are living is shallow and narrow.
Today is World Mission Sunday. It reminds us that we all have a mission, and that mission is to “go out to the whole world and preach the Gospel to all creation” (Mk. 16, 15). The Lord teaches us today to go beyond our selfish worldly agenda, to go beyond our comfort zones, to go beyond our biases and narrow-mindedness, and reach out, dialogue, in the spirit of peace, respect, understanding and love—deeply and widely.
A moment with the Lord:
Lord, from shallow and narrow thoughts, words and deeds, deliver us. Amen!

A moment with the Lord:
Lord, you are loving and generous. Set us free from our prison of greed and selfishness. Amen.
In today’s Gospel (Mt. 22, 1-14), Jesus likened the Kingdom of Heaven to a king who invited guests to a wedding feast, but those invited refused to come, ignored the invitation, made excuses and, worse, mistreated and even killed those sent to invite them. Sad to say, we often dishonor God’s gracious invitation for us to share in His life because there are more “important things” in our lives. We snub the Feast that awaits us because of our selfishness, greed and personal agenda that we cannot let go of and cannot let God.
How gracious and generous God is and how selfish and how calculating we are. Our God is a God of justice, but more so, He is a God of mercy. This is our hope—that God’s heart is so big, and God’s embrace is so wide that we all can be accommodated in His loving heart, unworthy as we are.
Think about this: “When we stand up with ego, walls are created; when we bow down in humility and reach out in generosity, hearts are connected.”
