Saturday of the Twenty-Second Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: 1Cor. 4:6b-15 | Ps. 145:17-21 | Lk. 6:1-5
Paul is telling the Corinthians that they have lost sight of the Gospel. They have become proud and are acting as if all they have, they have earned. Paul reminds them that all is gift. He also reminds them that the following of the Gospel is not easy. They must realize that the Christian will be called to suffer and endure the cross just as Jesus did. Likewise, Jesus tells the Pharisees
that they have lost sight of the meaning of the law and the Sabbath. They have come to live the letter of the law and not the Spirit. So today we are challenged to keep our vision clear. We are called to recognize who we are, to realize that all we are and have has come from God, and that we should use all to bring God to others.
How is your vision? Do you give thanks for all your gifts? Have you forgotten that all you have and are comes from God? Are you willing to walk in the pathway of Christ? Take time to ask Jesus to give you good vision.
