DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Rejecting Jesus” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautions us against “rejecting” the Good News of Salvation through living a lukewarm faith. Ponder on, “To have gratitude to God for all His blessings, Protection and Mercy is to live consciously in His Truth and Love.  Jesus is inviting us to renew our love for Him daily, and not take His Love for granted.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 13:54-58

Coming to his home town, Jesus taught the people in their synagogue in such a way that they were astonished and said, ‘Where did the man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers? This is the carpenter’s son, surely? Is not his mother the woman called Mary, and his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Jude? His sisters, too, are they not all here with us? So where did the man get it all?’

And they would not accept him. But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is despised only in his own country and in his own house,’ and he did not work many miracles there because of their lack of faith.
