Fr. Bill Adams, C.Ss.R. Daily Reflection:

Fr. Bill Adams, C.Ss.R.-Whittier, CA
July 30, 2014 - Jer. 15/10, 16-21, Matt. 13/44-46

The Prophet Jeremiah strongly feels God’s indignation toward the people who have chosen to worship false gods. God wants to save his people but they will not listen to the prophet. So Jeremiah experiences strife and contention. Then the Lord tells him that his words will be powerful and will achieve God’s purpose. For God will always be with him and will save him from harm. If we are also willing to feel strongly God’s love for his people who are hurting, God will use us powerfully to bring grace and healing to them. Jeremiah’s words do eventually bring salvation to people, and so will ours. But am I willing to love people as Jeremiah?
