Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 15, A.D. 2007

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Jeremiah 7:23-28
Psalm 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9
Luke 11:14-23

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. (Luke 11:23)

What does it mean to be with the Lord? How are we scattered if we are not with the Lord? In the first reading we see how God desires us to be with Him: "Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people." (Jeremiah 7:23) If we are to do this, then we are doing the Lord's will and thus we are with Him.

Since God is a good Father, He has given us the freedom to choose to be with Him or against Him. Being such a good Father He respects our decision, but He continues to try to guide His children. He said, "From the day that your fathers left the land of Egypt even to this day, I have sent you untiringly all my servants the prophets." (Jeremiah 7:25) He even went as far as sending His only Son Jesus Christ, as we see in today's Gospel, Who has brought the Kingdom of God upon us (see Luke 11:20) so that we may have a deeper understanding of God's will enabling us to do as He commanded, "Walk in all the ways that I command you, so that you may prosper." (Jeremiah 7:24)
