Dt. 30:10-14 | Ps. 69: 14, 17, 30-31, 33-34, 36-37 | Col. 1:15- 20 | Lk. 10:25-37
Paul tells us that Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. He is the head of the body, the church, the beginning, first born form the dead. Jesus made peace with God for us through the blood of His Cross. Jesus is approached to identify what is the most important commandment. Deuteronomy tells us that the commandments are in our mouths and in our hearts and we have only to carry them out. That is what Jesus tells us when He shares the story of the Good Samaritan. We are called to bring the commandments from our minds into our hearts and in our actions by bringing God’s love to others. The Way we do this is by acting with love, going out to others in love, responding in love to those in need.
Reflect on people in your life. How have you responded to those in need? Have you going out to help them? Have you been kind when they needed it? Have you shared your goods with them? What might God be inviting you to do today?
