Homily (Reflection) for Thursday of the Third Week in Ordinary Time (II), (30th January, 2020) on the Gospel
Ps 131:1-5.11-14 (R. Lk 1:32);
Topic: The lamp.
Jesus teaches us in today’s gospel that His teachings are not meant to be hidden. Using the allegory of a lamp, they are to be placed on the lamp-stand for others to see. He goes on to say that the standard one uses for others will be used for the person and even more. More will be given to the person who knows that he/she has because nobody is empty-handed, cf. 1Cor 12:7-11.
God expects all of us in various ways we can to help others see the light of the gospel. He expects us to do to others exactly what and how we want others to do to us, cf. Matt 7:12; Lk 6:31. Our duty is to take the lamp, place it on the stand for others and using the right standard for others.
Bible Reading: 2Tim 4:1-8.
Thought for today: Use the measure you want to be measured with for others.
Let us pray: God help us place the light of the gospel on the stand for others to see through Christ – Amen.
You are free to share this reflection with others if you consider it worthy.
