Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 24 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Peter 1:3-9
Psalm 111:1-2, 5-6, 9 and 10c
Mark 10:17-27

A reflection on today's Scripture:

The Lord will remember His covenant forever. (Psalm 111:5)

The young man in this gospel passage asks: "Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" (Mark 10:17)

What an opportunity to see Jesus face to face and ask the most important question for personal eternal life!

The young man is told by Jesus, to know the Commandments. (see Mark 10:19) He replies, as should we, that he has observed the commandments since his youth.

Jesus, who can see what is in the heart, sees the one thing that the young man lacks for the answer to His question: it is his many possessions.

What would Jesus see, in our hearts, if we had this opportunity?
What would He ask us to forgo?
What is most important in our hearts, to us?
Would we leave Jesus and sadly walk away?

Jesus is our only path to salvation. Let Him look into our hearts and then do as He says and follow Him. As Jesus says, "Salvation is impossible for men, but not for God."

All things are possible for God.

The Lord will remember forever.

Will YOU?

O Lord, help us to follow You.
