Jesus asked a crowd why when they saw clouds in the west did they say, the rain is coming and when the wind blew from the south, a heat wave!
He then said to them, “You hypocrites, you can interpret the earth and the sky, but how can you not know how to interpret the present time?” (Luke 12:56)
Perhaps, among the many messages Jesus was sharing here, was that we ought to focus more on his ways today, rather than postponing our actions until tomorrow.
Lord Jesus, may today be a day of peace and joy; humbly serving you like a child and treasuring every moment. Amen.
Prayer: Peace (St Francis of Assisi)
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
