Monday of the Seventeenth Week in Ordinary Time
“This wicked people who refuse to obey my words, who walk in the stubbornness of their hearts and follow strange gods to serve and adore them, shall be like this loincloth which is good for nothing.” (Jeremiah 13:10)
It is difficult to hear words from God that put us in our place when we refuse to follow His ways and commandments. He does love us so much that He sent Jesus to earth to live with us, show us how to love and to die to take our sins away so that before God we are blameless. Each day we have choices to make, and God gives us His word to guide us. We are fortunate that Avera has these daily reflections to give us readings that remind us of what God says.
Dear Father in heaven.
please forgive me when I don’t follow Your Word.
Help me to read Your Word daily so that I may learn Your will
and apply it to my life.
Help me to show the love and forgiveness to others as You have shown to me. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
