Daily Reflection Sunday 1st August 2021
ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR THE TEMPORARY OR THE ETERNAL?
Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B
1 st August 2021
This world parades plenty of shiny distractions meant to mimic fulfillment and satisfaction. We chase the temporary; fame, sex, power, possessions, and achievements and yet we are never content and the grass is always greener somewhere else. Listen to what Jesus says: “Do not work for food that perishes …. ” True satisfaction is found in Jesus.
When we firmly focus on Jesus, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives. The arm of the flesh will fail you! Only Jesus truly satisfies! Are you hungry for more of Jesus or more of the world?
Dear Jesus, I am nothing and lost without you. Increase my hunger for you. And never let me be separated from you. Amen
