Memorial of Saint Lucy, Virgin and Martyr (YEAR 2013)

Today's Scripture: Matthew 3:1-12 (December 13, 2013)
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus warns the generation of his day to heed God's word before it is too late. He compares teachers and scholars, and those who have been taught, with obstinate playmates who refuse to follow any sort of direction or instruction. Jesus’ parables about disappointed playmates challenge us to examine whether we are selective to only hear what we want to hear. The children in Jesus' parable react with dismay because they cannot get anyone to follow their instruction. They grumble that if they play their music at weddings, no one will dance or sing; and if they play at funerals, it is the same. The prophets remind us that God’s kingdom is open to those who are teachable and receptive to the word of God. Through their obedience to God's word and commandments, they receive not only intelligence and peace for themselves, but they, in turn become a blessing to their children and their offspring as well. This refrain echoes the words of Ecclesiastes 3:4 "there is a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance." Are you in tune with the message of God's kingdom? And do you obey it without reservation? Jesus' message of the kingdom of God is good news to those who will listen and it produces true happiness and spiritual freedom for them; but it is also a warning for those who refuse to obey.
