Daily Online Reflection:
Thursday of the 12th Week of Ordinary Time
How often do we follow the path of least resistance? Often we can settle for doing just enough to get by. This is definitely not what Jesus is talking about in our Gospel reading today.
Being a follower of Jesus calls for a 100% effort, every day. We are called to live our Christian lives out of a rock solid foundation of prayer, Christian service, a knowledge of our faith and obedience to Gospel values. This is doing “the will of my Father in heaven” that Jesus spoke of in our reading, and a living out of the values of the Kingdom of God.
