OPEN OUR EYES TO THE TRUTH, O LORD!
⏰Saturday of the Second Week of Advent (15 December 2018)
📕Sir 48:1-4, 9-11b; Ps 28:2ac and 3b, 15-16a, 18-19 (R.v.4); Matt 17:10-13
Do you understand why some people normally leaves the truth to pursue shadows? I think it is because they normally subject the verification of the truth to principles which are generated from personal biases. But truth cannot be subjective.
That was the problem with the leaders of the Jews which Jesus condemned. That is also the same problem that makes some people jump from one place to another in search of the type of God which they have fashioned for themselves. In that way, they approach God for their selfish interests and not because they seek the face of God.
If we follow God faithfully without thinking about ourselves, we shall discover that not only shall we be saved (cf. Ps 80:4), our good name, like that of the saints, shall go forth through all the earth (see Ps 19:4).
Lord, may we seek and find your truth, and and follow it to its fullness. Amen.
Have a great weekend. Peace be with you.
