Friday-Thirty-second Week in Ordinary Time

Psalm 119:18: Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, thank you for your righteousness. We know that you will give justice and settle all injustice when you judge the earth. This gives us consolation because we know that through Jesus, you see us as your righteous child. Our humble prayer today is that we can live in a way that brings honor to you and reflects the character of your Son when he walked this earth. In Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

26 As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was in the days of Lot -- they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, 29 but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulphur rained from heaven and destroyed them all -- 30 so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. 31 On that day, let him who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away; and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35 There will be two women grinding together; one will be taken and the other left." 37 And they said to him, "Where, Lord?" He said to them, "Where the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together."
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
God's judgment is good news for those who are ready to meet him. Their reward is God himself, the source and auth0or of all that is good, truth, beauty, love, and eternal life. The people in Noah's time disregarded the Lord's warning of approaching judgment. They missed the boat, literally! Whose boat are you taking - the world's boat to short-lived achievement and happiness or God's boat to an eternal kingdom and bliss with him? Those whose hope is definitely anchored in heaven will not be disappointed when God's judgment comes. They rejoice even currently that they will see the Lord in his glory! Is our hope confidently placed in God and his kingdom? Loving Infant Jesus, we place all our hope in you because you have redeemed the world by your death on the cross and by your victory over the grave. Help us to never lose sight of the goal of heaven that we may live each day in joyful expectation of your return in glory.
