Gospel Reflection for Sunday 25th October25th October 2020
30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jesus talks to the Sadducees and the Pharisees about two important commandments – ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ & ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’.
Sometimes we think about these two commandments and we wonder how we can apply them to our lives. They are tough commandments to live by, there are times in life when we find it hard to love our family and friends and even God. But Jesus gives us these commandments to teach us how to love with humility and live a life like his.
A challenge for you
Think of a time when you have not been able to love someone or forgive someone. Once you have got that person in your mind, here is a challenge for you:
Find a quiet place and sit and pray for them. Pray for your relationship and pray for courage. Pray that you will be able to forgive them and re kindle the friendship you once had with them.
This may seem hard, but Jesus taught us how to love and forgive just like God does. God has an undying love for us and he wants us to be happy. So, go love your neighbour. Love your God.
