Like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand

1 John 5:14-15: This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him.

Heavenly Father, We thank you for the day, for the grace of your listening ear, we thank you more than words can say. Through the authority of Jesus our brother and by the grace of your interceding Holy Spirit, we offer you our thanks and love this day. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 7:21-29)
There is only one way in which a person’s genuineness can be proved, and that is by one’s practice. Fine words can by no means replace good deeds. Our character is revealed in the choices we make, especially when we have to choose between what is true and false, good and evil. What’s the meaning of today’s story for us? The kind of foundation we put up our lives upon will determine whether we can survive the storms and trials of life that are certain to come. Builders usually place their foundations when the weather and soil conditions are at their excellent. It takes prudence to know how a foundation will stand up next to adverse conditions. Building a house on a flood plain, such as a dry river-bed, is a sure bet for tragedy! Jesus prefaced his story with a caution: We may fool one another by our words, but God cannot be deceived. He sees the heart as it truly is -with its reasons intentions, desires, and choices. Do we cheat on an exam or on our income taxes, especially when it will cost us? Do we lie, or cover-up, when disclosing the truth will cause us pain or embarrassment? A true person is honest and reliable before God, fellow citizen, and oneself. Such a person's word can be taken as trustworthy.
(Tomorrow is Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist)
