DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Resistance & Rejection: Many people believe in the Truth of the Gospel, but continue to resist and reject in living the Truth.  It is difficult to comprehend why people want to turn away from the gift of Eternal Life of Happiness, in exchange for the passing attractions and temptations of this earthly life.  Ponder on this reality today.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 11:16-19

Jesus spoke to the crowds: ‘What comparison can I find for this generation? It is like children shouting to each other as they sit in the market place: We played the pipes for you, and you wouldn’t dance; we sang dirges, and you wouldn’t be mourners.

‘For John came, neither eating nor drinking, and they say, “He is possessed.” The Son of man came, eating and drinking, and they say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds.’
