Today’s Gospel: Matthew 10, 16-23
Today’s Gospel begins “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” What a visualization that brings to mind!
This really makes up ponder the path we must take in order to walk with our Lord. He doesn’t pretend that it will be an easy one. Each day we are challenged to choose the right way to respond to everyone we meet.
There are many times in a day that our children or even people in the grocery store may challenge our patience. We are being sent out into our community every day with the task of calling upon Christ to lead us to make the right responses to the people in our paths.
Whether it is to make the loving response when our child may want something unattainable or when someone may cut us off in traffic, we are called to be Christ-like. To be perceptive and loving in our reactions.
Have I made the loving choice today? Have I shown others the grace of God’s presence in their lives today?
O Lord, please send your spirit to guide me along the right paths. Help me to see everyone is worthy of your love.
