Dear Friend in the Lord,

Fearless and Humble Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus instructed His Apostles to live their faith with humility and courage.  This is how He obeyed and lived His Father’s Will.  Ponder on, “Do we glorify God or do we glorify ourselves; when we live our faith and serve God’s people?  Pray for the gift of humility to serve God with creative fidelity.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 10:24-29

Jesus instructed the Twelve as follows: ‘The disciple is not superior to teacher, nor slave to master. It is enough for disciple to grow to be like teacher, and slave like master. If they have called the master of the house “Beelzebul”, how much more the members of his household?

‘So do not be afraid of them. Everything now covered up will be uncovered, and everything now hidden will be made clear. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the daylight; what you hear in whispers, proclaim from the housetops.

‘Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; fear him rather who can destroy both body and soul in hell. Can you not buy two sparrows for a penny? And yet not one falls to the ground without your Father knowing.’
