Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 6, A.D. 2006

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Leviticus 19:1-2, 11-18
Psalm 19:8-10, 15
Matthew 25:31-46

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

In the first reading the Lord said to Moses: "Be holy, for I, the Lord, your God, am holy." He then goes on to explain to Moses through the commandments that the way to be holy is by treating others well. "You shall not steal, you shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart...." God's commandments are telling us that if we want to please Him we must be good, kind, loving and generous to our fellow man.

In the parable of the Son of Man dividing the sheep and the goats, Jesus is instructing us how to get to heaven. We are to follow the commandments set out for us by God through Moses. The sheep of Jesus' parable live in a herd for their own protection. Alone, they cannot defend themselves against predators. But simply by staying together in the herd, they increase their quality of life.

Jesus is calling us to live in community and to support each other. This demonstration of love to our neighbour is most pleasing to Him. By showing respect for all of God's creation, including and especially our fellow man, we are showing how much we love Him.
