DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – Action: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that even the Son of God, lives a life of simplicity and detachment from material comforts.  This is because living God’s Will and loving God must be our wholehearted focus and foundation of our daily human experiences, and fulfilment in life.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 8:18-22

When Jesus saw the crowd all about him he gave orders to leave for the other side. One of the scribes then came up and said to him, ‘Master, I will follow you wherever you go.’ Jesus said, ‘Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.’

Another man, one of the disciples, said to him, ‘Lord, let me go and bury my father first.’ But Jesus said, ‘Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.’
