Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith and Deeds: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds His disciples that “listening to His Words of Truth and Salvation” is not complete, until they are lived out in concrete deeds. Have we spoken about God and virtues to others? At the same time, are we aware that we all fall short of living the ideals of Jesus’ Gospel of Salvation?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
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!’
