A WORD FOR TODAY 1st August 2018
Nothing good in life comes easy and if you wish to have the best, you must make tremendous sacrifice to acquire it.
The kingdom of heaven we are told in the reading of today is like a pearl which a merchant found and he hid and went and sold all He had in order to possess it.
If you are not ready to let go of that which is inferior which you are clinging unto, you will be unable to hold unto that which is superior, God and His kingdom.
St. Alphonsus Ligouri whom we celebrate today had to leave his wealth and possessions behind in order to follow Jesus and by doing that he was able to be available to the poor and show them the way to God.
You cannot serve God well when you love money, accessories, fame, power, honour e.t.c more than Him. If you wish that God will come and dwell with you, then you must empty yourself of the world and He will come to dwell in your heart and from you He will continue to bless the world.
You must sell something, you must give up something and you must sacrifice something in order to possess God's Kingdom. Identify that thing and let it go immediately so that your real and true possession will come to you.
Good morning dearest one. smileðŸ˜Š and do have a fantastic new month of August. May God walk with you and help you enjoy the blessedness from Above. Amen. And May the Almighty God bless you: the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Meditation: Jeremiah 15: 10, 16-21/Psalm 59/Matthew 13:44-46
Watch-Word: Let God of the inferior and hold unto the superior
Anyone who wants to be a friend of God must be ready to let go of the world. Any undue attachment to the things of this life will stop you from possessing the kingdom of heaven.#Detach and attach!
