“Between us and you a great chasm has been fixed.” Luke 16:26
Jesus reminds us that we have a choice to make. We have the Rich Man, who though was not an evil person, he just did not pay attention to Lazarus, the Poor Man. Lazarus was in need of kindness, but the Rich Man did not reach out to him, and we see in the Parable, this was a terrible thing not to do. It has eternal results!
Jesus challenges us! Do we ignore the Lazarus individuals in our lives, or do we break the separation that divides us?
If we want to follow Jesus, we do not have a choice, we must break the chasm!
Today is a new day! See those in need and bridge the gap that separates ourselves for each other!
“Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them.” Luke 12: 37
Life is good!
This parable of Jesus is so true in the real spiritual world. Jesus wants to wait on us, but we must be ready to receive Him!
If we ever have to question, why does Jesus not come to me? We must ask ourselves, what are we doing to block His entrance? He is always available to serve us with Peace and Love!
What blocks Jesus entrance?
When we are hurt and we return the action. When we judge someone. When we participate in evil against individuals or groups. All of the above and any action against Divine Love and Peace are road blocks that keep Jesus from serving us.
Today, may we commit ourselves to creating an open door to Jesus!
Embrace whose you are. You were fearfully and wonderfully made – on purpose with a purpose. God will NEVER leave you nor forsake. Because of His unconditional love, we are given grace and mercy – which is sufficient. Trust and believe in Him. You matter and you are loved. Blessings 💙
For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that be the Will of God, than for doing evil. 1 Peter 3:17
This season of the Pandemic of 2020 is truly a time of suffering. But as with all time, we have a choice to make. The choice comes to doing good are evil. The suffering will happen regardless of whatever choices we make in our relationship to ourselves or others. However, the result of our decisions makes a world of difference. If we choose to be kind and loving in our suffering, we will remain in peace. We can make the World a better place in this time of travail. Kindness and love are always the weapons of peace.
The Eternal one will never leave or forsake us. May we never leave or forsake the Eternal one by choosing not to be kind and loving!
The Community of Our Lady of Mount Caritas are with you in prayer.
