Dear Friend in the Lord,

Lacking Wisdom in life” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus pointed out to the Jews that they lack the wisdom to recognise and accept the Truth that offers Salvation. As such they continue to reject Him, as the Messiah.  Ponder on, “Do we focus on the secular world’s attractions and glory, instead of living the wisdom to choose and follow Jesus’ Ways?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 5:43-47

Jesus said to the Jews: ‘I have come in the name of my Father and you refuse to accept me; if someone else should come in his own name you would accept him. How can you believe, since you look to each other for glory and are not concerned with the glory that comes from the one God?

‘Do not imagine that I am going to accuse you before the Father: you have placed your hopes on Moses, and Moses will be the one who accuses you. If you really believed him you would believe me too, since it was about me that he was writing; but if you will not believe what he wrote, how can you believe what I say?’
