13th August 2019 Tuesday 19th Week of Ordinary Time - Ss. Pontian and Hippolytus
Deuteronomy 31:1-8, Matthew 18:1-5,10,12-14
"To live in the present"
Jesus invites us to become like little children and live in the present moment. It is in the present moment where God reveals Himself. In the present moment, we come to be aware that God is with us and that He cares for us. We need to plan and work for a better future, but without missing the present moment. We take delight in life itself with all its goodness and wonderment. Living in the present, we learn how to love the people around us rather than focus on past resentments or the many expectations we have of them. Becoming like little children leads us to let God be God, let others be others and let ourselves be ourselves.
Question for reflection:
What is Jesus’ personal invitation as I enter into prayer today?
