Wednesday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time ‘b’



Many of us make a variety of sacrifices for our God and for another person. We pray, we go to Mass and receive the Eucharist, we fast during certain days. We could do many other things for ourselves during that time, but we know how important it is to set aside time for the Lord. We also know that the second most important commandment is to love our neighbor. So again, we make sacrifices for those who need our help. Some of us volunteer at a food pantry, some collect clothes or food for the poor. You may make donations to some charity programs and to the missions. These things are very essential for us Christians. We are called to pray, fast, to give alms. However today Jesus is asking you and me why are we doing these things. What is the real reason for your sacrifice? Is it because this is only a family tradition, or because you want others to think better about you? Or maybe you do them because you don’t want to offend God. Jesus wants to know the reason for your good actions and good deeds and reminds us today that all we do, we must do out of love for God and our neighbor. Only love should motivate us to pray, to fast, and to give alms. “And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”
