3rd Week of Advent (A) : Monday 12th December 2022

Num. 24:2-7,15-17; Ps. 2
-9; Mt. 21:23-27 (Ps. Wk. III)

“Teach me your ways, O Lord.” All our lives, we can recite this prayer with the Psalmist; for each day of our life, we must be open to the guidance of God. The ways of the Lord are pathways to truth and grace and light. They will lead us through life in this world and bring us to eternal life.

The Psalmist perceptively states that God teaches His ways to the humble. Humility is the virtue which enables us to accept the truth and rejoice in it. God’s ways are the ways we must learn to recognise through humble faith.

Then, humility is the fruit of truth, mainly because it acknowledges our relationship with God. God’s ways have not been ours, but humility will teach us how to be glad and rejoice in God’s mysterious ways that bring us truth, peace, light and hope.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and so we are assured that by knowing Jesus more clearly, loving Him more dearly and following Him more closely, we will more certainly and securely live according to the ways of God.

Father in Heaven, teach us Your ways. O Holy Spirit, guide us in following Jesus and bring us safely to eternal life.
