THE LOVE THAT WAITS.

HOMILY, THURSDAY, 14TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A

Hosea 11:1-4.8c-9, Matthew 10:7-15

THE BANQUET GIFT: There is no point taking offence at the aberrations of who we have not tutored. There is not point expecting  returns from someone who we have not invested in. While we should not expect to reap from where we have not sown, we should in love  wait when what we have sown is not yielding the expected result.

More so, even if we have put in much into someone’s life and the person repaid us with evil, love still remains the antidote, lest in the heat of anger we destroy what have built over the years. From the first reading we read,

Thus says the Lord: When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. The more I called them, the, more they went from me………..I will not execute my fierce anger, I will not again destroy Ephraim; for I am God and not man, the holy one in your midst, and I will not come to destroy.”

Though God cannot destroy what he has built, each  is free to waste the love which he he has showered. May we not take God’s love for granted. May we not reject all his channels of blessings by our attitudes.

More so, we cannot help everybody. There is no point bickering over the persons who refused our help. You own your peace.  Take it back. Move on to those who deserve the treasure in your hand. There is no time to be wasted over those who do not want to change their ways. The Lord said in the gospel,

As you enter the house, salute it. And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.”

Instead of giving up on people, let us give them up to God.  He is the one who sent us. He is the real helper. We are just on errand. He waits patiently in love till the appointed time. He gives each one the opportunity to change before the day of judgment.

PRAYER

O Lord, give me the grace to show your love always. May no human rejection stop me from achieving your merciful design in me and through me. Help me to cherish your love, that I may possess the joy of your heavenly kingdom. Thy kingdom come.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
matter to be really something that I think I would never
understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for
me. I am looking forward for your next post,
I will try to get the hang of it!
