Homily (Reflection) for Friday of the Second Week Advent (I) (9th December, 2016) on the Gospel
Is 48:17-19;Ps 1:1-4.6. (R. cf. Jn 8:12);
Topic: Utmost Importance.
Jesus compares this generation with children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to one another, “We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not mourn” (cf. Matt 11:16-17). This comparison was based on their inability to accept both John the Baptist and the Messiah irrespective of their life styles.
May be you have been worrying what you will do to please one person or the other. I want to remind you that we are still in that generation Jesus spoke about in today’s gospel or even in a worse one. Both Jesus and His forerunner were not bothered about this but that of Utmost Importance, doing the will of God. So, listen to God and not to men, (cf. Acts 4:19) learn how to please God and not men, cf. 1Thess 4:1.
Bible Reading: Acts 4:1-22.
Thought for today: What is Utmost Important to you?
Let us pray: Lord, help us to listen to you and to please you alone – Amen.
You are free to share this reflection with others if you consider it worthy.
