Above the Clouds
REFLECTIONS

JULY 3, 2022 - 14TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

1st Reading: Isaiah 66:10-14c
2nd Reading: Galatians 6:14-18

Gospel: Luke 10:1-12,17-20

In today's Gospel, Jesus instructed His disciples whom He had sent ahead of Him. They never questioned His instructions nor His wisdom behind it. So, they were to go by pairs, carry no extra provisions, stay in the same house, and proclaim the message of peace and reconciliation. By worldly wisdom, these are not effective strategies or instructions at all, and would be rated as amateur, if not naïve. But God's wisdom is not man's wisdom, and God's ways are not man's ways!

 

There’s a story of a man, who kept on questioning the wisdom and the ways of God. One time, he found himself under a mango tree. He asked, “Why did God make a lofty mango tree bear such small fruits? “ On the ground, he saw a crawling watermelon vine, so he asked, “Why did God make a crawling watermelon vine bear such big fruits? Just as he was feeling so happy about his imagined wisdom and insight, a mango fell on his head. Then he understood and knew that indeed, God is all-knowing and wise. From that day on, he never questioned the ways and wisdom of God.

 

Today, pray for the grace of faith. More than something we work for or earn, grace is something given to us. It's all about Him, not us! And so, may we have the humility to see that God has a master plan, and the trust that He makes all things beautiful in His time.

 

Prayer: Lord, teach me to rely more not so much on our own understanding and wisdom but above all on Your understanding and wisdom. Amen.

 

Fr. Dante
