Gospel: John 6:22-29
"Work for food that endures.” - cf Jn 6:27
Before doing any endeavor, we usually tend to ask, ‘What’s in it for me?’. We oftentimes get attracted to things, people or activities because of personal gain. In today’s gospel, Jesus reminds the people to work not for things that are superficial and borne of self-interests. Jesus invites us to accomplish God’s works by closely following His footsteps. As an old acronym goes, ‘WWJD: What would Jesus do?’
Mother Mary, as the one closest to our Lord, help us purify our intentions and work for relationships that last, making meaningful time on earth in accordance with His Kingdom.
