Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
June 3, A.D. 2006
Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:
Acts 28:16-20, 30-31
Psalm 11:4-5, 7
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
"What Concern Is It of Yours; You Follow Me."
How often do we look upon another as, say, something like, "What has he or she done to earn such favors from God?” Or, “Why can't I have things like that?"
Jesus says to us today, "What concern is it of yours? You follow me." That is, these things we allow to trouble us are temptations against His grace. We need not concern ourselves with the hows and the whys of who is beloved of God. In fact, in one way or another, we are all resting our heads on Christ, some at different times, some in different ways. People look at us too and say, "Why does he or she have that special gift?"
God graces us with what we need and what we can use. For some it is a gift of hospitality, for some a gift of prayer, for still others a gift for expressing love. It is not our concern to worry about the distribution of gifts, but rather to follow Jesus every step of the way.
