DO NOT TAKE JESUS FOR GRANTED – REPENT
“Alas for you, Chorazin! Alas for you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.” Why does it seem that those who are given the greatest advantages don’t appreciate them? It is not good to take a fellow human being for granted. It is dangerous to take Jesus for granted. Let us receive humbly and responsibly the gospel call to conversion each day. Tyre and Sidon would have repented – repent quickly.
Dear Jesus, open our eyes and ears and hearts to your call to repent, to follow you, and to share the news of your love with all people. Amen.
Rev. Fr. Alexander Mwebembezi
