Daily Bible Verse 101

Impossible to love God and mammon.

"When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions." (Matthew 19: 22).

What did the rich young man heard that caused him such emotional turmoil?

"If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." (Matthew 19: 21).

Being rich and having many possessions is not bad. What is rebuked here is having attachment to anything. It is a sin against the First Commandment: "You shall have no other gods before me." (Exodus 20: 3). Any unhealthy love for any creature is considered idolatry.

What are you attached to?
Money, possessions, comfort, dog?
"For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be." (Matthew 6: 21).

Jesus also warned us: "Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you." (John 6: 27).

What shall you do to be free of attachment to creatures? Ask Abba Father to prune you gently.
"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower. He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit." (John 15: 1 - 2).

Blessed are they who are pruned of their attachments, they shall yield abundant fruits for the Kingdom of God. O God, You made us for Yourself, may our heart be restless until it rests in You. Amen.

My flesh is true food.

"Jesus said to the crowds:
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world." (John 6: 51).

Once again we savor the Bread of life Discourse. This teaching is so important for the life of the Christian and the Church that Mother Church is never tired of serving this menu again and again.

"For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him." (John 6: 55 - 56).

Those who come to the Table of the Lord must leave their lofty learning behind. This Food is for the simple of heart, the childlike, the lowly.

"Let whoever is simple turn in here;
to the one who lacks understanding, she says,
Come, eat of my food, and drink of the wine I have mixed! Forsake foolishness that you may live; advance in the way of understanding." (Proverbs 9: 4 - 6).

What is your response to Jesus? Come to the Table and "taste and see the goodness of the Lord." (Psalm 34: 9).

Who is a little child?

"Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18: 3).

We have noted the magnificent obsession of Jesus for the wonderful place and state He calls the Kingdom of God.
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared for those who love him." (1 Corinthians 2: 9).

Throughout His public ministry, Jesus laid out the qualifying principles for entrance into this Kingdom. We shall look at one today: A childlike attitude. What is this?

+ Innocence (sinlessness)
+ Simple
+ Humble
+ Trusting
+ Forgiving
+ Living here and now

"What do you mean?" exclaimed Nicodemus. "How can an old man go back into his mother's womb and be born again?" (John 3: 4).

"Jesus replied, "I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit." (John 3: 5).

Here is the secret! The Holy Spirit must affect the transformation. If this transformation is not completed during your allotted life span, it will be finished in Purgatory, the Church teaches.

"It is not my heavenly Father's will that even one of these little ones should perish." (Matthew 18: 14).

Is divorce permitted?

"Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?" (Matthew 19: 3).

Is divorce permitted? The Pharisees asked Jesus. Jesus used this question to teach us God's original plan for marriage between one man and one woman. God joined man and woman together to become one for life.
If this is so, what is the reason for the prevalent heart-wrenching divorces? Hardness of heart or sin is the cause, Jesus answered. This is how the Church explains the progression of the hardness of heart:

"The harmony in which they had found themselves, thanks to original justice, is now destroyed: the control of the soul's spiritual faculties over the body is shattered; the of man and woman becomes subject to tensions, their relations henceforth marked by lust and domination. Harmony with creation is broken: visible creation has become alien and hostile to man. Because of man, creation is now subject "to its bondage to decay".Finally, the consequence explicitly foretold for this disobedience will come true: man will "return to the ground", for out of it he was taken. Death makes its entrance into human history." (CCC 400).

What sin has torn asunder, Jesus Christ has reconciled in His body by giving man and woman the means and tools to live in harmony. The Church accompanies the married couples on their journey of faith with the Sacraments: Matrimony, Eucharist, Reconciliation. The Church provides a number of effective tools as aid to harmony: marriage preparation classes, counseling, Cursillo, Encounters, etc.

Like any vocation, it is impossible for marriage to work outside the framework of sacraments, tools and resources provided by the Providence of God for the institution today.

Take my life, O Lord!

"This is enough, O Lord! Take my life, for I am no better than my ancestors." (1 Kings 19: 4).

Elijah, the great Prophet is in big trouble. Jezebel has placed a price on his head. This provoked a depression and a burn out. Can this happen to a great man of God? It can happen to anyone. It happened to Jeremiah, John the Baptist. From the Cross, Jesus cried out: ""Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" which means "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?" (Matthew 27: 46).

The mystery of Divine Providence is profound. But God never forsakes His servant. And He brought food to the weary Elijah.
"Get up and eat!" (1 Kings 19: 5)
"Get up and eat!" reminds us of "Take and eat." (Matthew 26: 26). In the later, the food is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

"Get up and eat or the journey will be too much for you!" (1 Kings 19: 7).
The food that Elijah was offered and the Eucharist has this thing in common: Both are food for the Journey.

"Elijah got up, ate, and drank; then strengthened by that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to the mountain of God, Horeb." (1 Kings 19: 8).

Jesus offers us the living bread that comes down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that He gives is His flesh for the life of the world." (Cf John 6: 51).

Everyone is invited to taste and see that the Lord is good. How happy is the man who trusts in Jesus (Cf Psalm 34: 8).
