DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s People: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded His disciples to: build unity amongst people who serves in His Name, value every good deeds, and never divide or deceive people (especially children), in the faith. Ponder on, “Do we live these teachings of Jesus daily or do we justify all our words and deeds?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
John said to Jesus, ‘Master, we saw a man who is not one of us casting out devils in your name, and because he was not one of us we tried to stop him.’ But Jesus said, ‘You must not stop him; no one who works a miracle in my name is likely to speak evil of me. Anyone who is not against us is for us.
‘If anyone gives you a cup of water to drink just because you belong to Christ, then I tell you solemnly, he will most certainly not lose his reward.
‘But anyone who is an obstacle to bring down one of these little ones who have faith, would be better thrown into the sea with a great millstone hung round his neck.’
