Twenty-Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 10 October 2021
Wisdom 7:7-11. Psalm 90:12-13, 14-15, 16-17. Hebrews 4:12-13. Mark 10:17-30.
Living for Eternal Life. Let us put ourselves into the gospel story today. All of us want to “inherit eternal life.” All of us strive to do what God commands, to do what is right and just. All of us strive to not let the things we have possess us. But it is hard going – impossible without reliance on God. This eternal life for which we long, this Kingdom of God in which we live now, is begun already in us and is fulfilled in completeness when we see God face-to-face for ever.
- What gets in my way of gaining eternal life – things, attitudes, behaviors?
- What mercy work will I do that lets me share what I have with someone in need?
- How will I follow Jesus more closely this week?
