Wednesday of the Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus' message of the kingdom of God is a announcement of good news that produces great joy and hope for those who will listen; but it is also a warning of disaster for those who refuse to accept God's cordial offer. Why did the message of John the Baptist and the message of Jesus meet with confrontation and deaf ears? It was out of jealously and spiritual blindness that the scribes and Pharisees attributed John the Baptist's austerities to the devil and they attributed Jesus' table fellowship as evidence for messianic affectation. They succeeded in frustrating God's plan for their lives because they had closed their hearts to the message of John the Baptist and now they close their ears to Jesus.
Word of the Day...
Philippians 2:3-4 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interest of others.
Prayer ...
Father, teach us to love your family as you do. We get so caught up and distracted with our own world and our own problems that we forget to notice those who are hurting around us. Help us to grow more aware and more attuned to those needs so you may minister through us. In the name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

31"To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the market place and calling to one another, `We piped to you, and you did not dance; we wailed, and you did not weep.' 33 For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine; and you say, `He has a demon.' 34 The Son of man has come eating and drinking; and you say, `Behold, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!' 35 Yet wisdom is justified by all her children."
