Matthew 7,21.24-27

Date posted: December 5, 2019

Let us all remember that we are in the Holy presence of God.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

Matthew 7,21.24-27
Jesus said to his disciples: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the
one who does the will of my Father in heaven.
Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set
solidly on rock.
And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on
sand.
The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely
ruined.”

Reflection
The house in the gospel represents our life. God wants the best for us. He is not happy to see our lives breaking up or
“collapsing.” So, we must always choose God as the foundation of our life if we want our lives not to be destroyed by the “storms.” How deeply are you rooted or grounded in God’s word?

Lasallian Guiding Principle
As stated in the LGP, “communion in mission as a way of relating to others suggests openness to all persons and the desire to be brother or sister to all especially those in need.” This will happen only if we are first grounded and rooted
in God’s word. Those who grounded are the ones who do the will of God. They are the ones who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. It is only in this way that we can say that we are in communion with God and with others.

One Life Prayer
Holy Spirit
You love us and offer us the gift of association.
You call us to live with joy
You invite us to be people with a creative inner life
Lord, grant us your strength for a life full of meaning
Fill us with your grace so that we will live the values of the gospel.
Our inner life will grow
And that we will be credible witnesses
Together with the entire Lasallian Family
In the midst of our world.
We make this prayer through the intercession of Mary
Queen and Mother of the Christian Schools, and through
The intercession of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, patron of teachers. Amen.
Our Lady of the Star, pray for us.
St. John Baptist de La salle, pray for us.
St. Miguel Febres Cordero, pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts, forever!

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
