Dear Friend in the Lord,
God-Centred Living: In today’s Gospel, Jesus cautioned His disciples about the dangers of the Pharisees’ hypocrisy. However, He assured them not to fear, if they live a God-centred life. When our life’s dreams, desires and directions are Christ-centred, we will always have God’s Peace; in spite of the challenges we face.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
The people had gathered in their thousands so that they were treading on one another. And Jesus began to speak, first of all to his disciples. ‘Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees — their hypocrisy. Everything now covered up will be uncovered, and everything now hidden will be made clear. For this reason, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in hidden places will be proclaimed from the housetops.
‘To you my friends I say: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. I will tell you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has the power to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, he is the one to fear.’
