Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
November 30, 2018 - Friday
Gospel: Matthew 4:18-22
1st Rdg: Rom 10:9-18
“Their voice has gone forth to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”
Today’s gospel is an account of Jesus inviting men who would accompany Him during His ministry. He did not choose the most influential at that time, nor the one with the purest heart or with the most available time. He called simple men who were busy doing their usual daily tasks, but with the will to come and follow Him. Who would have imagined that their simple ‘yes’ would change the lives of millions spanning centuries, up until today?
Likewise, our simple ‘yes’ to Jesus as we go about our usual daily tasks might seem small and insignificant to us. But who knows? Our voice can be the key to reach the heart of the unreachable.
