DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Vigilance and Wisdom: Living wisely is knowing how to live a healthy and balanced life, without indulging in excesses of anything.  However, living in the wisdom of the Gospel, is to be enlightened by the Holy Spirit to live a discerning life of knowing how to put God at the centre and purpose of my daily living.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 25:1-6, 8-9, 13

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Then the kingdom of Heaven will be like this: Ten wedding attendants took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were sensible: the foolish ones, though they took their lamps, took no oil with them, whereas the sensible ones took flasks of oil as well as their lamps. The bridegroom was late, and they all grew drowsy and fell asleep. But at midnight there was a cry, “Look! The bridegroom! Go out and meet him.”

‘The foolish ones said to the sensible ones, “Give us some of your oil: our lamps are going out.” But they replied, “There may not be enough for us and for you; you had better go to those who sell it and buy some for yourselves.”

‘So stay awake, because you do not know either the day or the hour.’
