Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s Commandments: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples that those who teach others not to keep the Commandments are ‘least in His Kingdom.” However, those who teach others to keep them, are “great in the Kingdom of heaven. Ponder on, “Do we faithfully witness and teach others to keep God’s Commandments?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them. In truth I tell you, till heaven and earth disappear, not one dot, not one little stroke, is to disappear from the Law until all its purpose is achieved.
‘Therefore, anyone who infringes even one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be considered the least in the kingdom of Heaven; but the person who keeps them and teaches them will be considered great in the kingdom of Heaven.’
