DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

“Spiritual Foundation” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to His disciples of the essential need to build a strong foundation in their faith, hope and love in Him, in their daily lives.  Ponder on, “When our lives and faith are challenged, in times of crisis, do we fall into the temptations and deceptions of the evil spirits, and the ways of the secular world?” 

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 6:46-49

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Why do you call me, “Lord, Lord” and not do what I say?

‘Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and acts on them – I will show you what such a person is like. Such a person is like the man who, when he built a house, dug, and dug deep, and laid the foundations on rock; when the river was in flood it bore down on that house but could not shake it, it was so well built. But someone who listens and does nothing is like the man who built a house on soil, with no foundations; as soon as the river bore down on it, it collapsed; and what a ruin that house became!’
