Jesus began to reproach the towns
where most of his mighty deeds had been done,
since they had not repented.
– Matthew 11:20-24
|July 12, 2011 Bible Reading and Gospel|
The beautiful point we can learn from Jesus is this: Let us not allow our regrets to spoil everything. In the same way that Jesus had to move on despite His message being rejected by the people of Chorazin, Bethsaida, Tyre and Sidon, we need to learn the art of surrendering each and every event in our life to God’s all-knowing ways. In God’s wisdom, even the most foolish thing finds meaning. In God’s mercy, even the worst error and sin find redemption and justification. Let us not try to play gods, goddesses, or demigods even.
– Fr. Domie Guzman, SSP
Father God, help me to surrender my regrets to You and grant me courage and hope to make the most of what is to come. Amen.
