Thursday of the Twenty- Eight Week in Ordinary Time ‘c’
We don’t like to be corrected. We don’t like others telling us how to live our lives and what we should change. It is very difficult to accept the truth about ourselves. We don’t want others to correct us -- not our politicians, not our priests, not our Church, not even Jesus. Many times, we just proudly say that we know better, and others should mind their own business. Besides, they are not any better than I am. God loves us and wants us to be saved, that’s why He sent prophets and even His only Son to tell people that they will be saved only if they stop wrongdoing and if they repent and convert. Some did, and some didn’t. Some got very angry and killed those prophets and crucified the Son of God. ‘The wisdom of God said I will send to them prophets and Apostles; some of them they will kill and persecute’. Perhaps we should ask God today for a humble heart, that whenever we are corrected, we should accept that and try to honestly think whether that person is right or not. Not just get angry and aggravated.
