DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Securities of life: Ponder on what secure securities that can give us lasting and deep peace and security in our lives.  Will our material wealth, health, power, popularity and people give us such needs?  Jesus in today’s Gospel proclaims that the true “treasures” of our lives are our love for God; they will last forever.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 12:35-40

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘There is no need to be afraid, little flock, for it has pleased your Father to give you the kingdom.

‘Sell your possessions and give to those in need. Get yourselves purses that do not wear out, treasure that will not fail you, in heaven where no thief can reach it and no moth destroy it. For wherever your treasure is, that is where your heart will be too.’
