DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Eternal Destination” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims the “Parable of the Dragnet” to remind us that every person will have to die and face the truth of their “eternal destination”.  Ponder on, “Do we live in God’s Ways and long to be in His Kingdom of heaven when we die?  If so, how are we witnessing to this in our Daily living?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 13:47-52

Jesus said to the crowds: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea that brings in a haul of all kinds. When it is full, the fishermen haul it ashore; then, sitting down, they collect the good ones in a basket and throw away those that are no use. This is how it will be at the end of time: the angels will appear and separate the wicked from the just, to throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

‘Have you understood all these?’ They said, ‘Yes.’ And he said to them, ‘Well then, every scribe who becomes a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out from his storeroom things both new and old.’
