Luke 9:62; “No one who puts hand to the plough and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
By REV. FR. PAUL ANIGBORO

Becoming and remaining the disciple of Jesus calls for self-sacrifice. It is never going to be an easy option. It demands abandoning oneself and embracing everything that comes our way as God's will. Jesus didn't promise us an easy ride through life but he assures us that he will be with us till the very end of time. All we need do is to remain committed to him always no matter how difficult it may seem.
 
The life of Job in the first reading is an example for us to emulate. Despite the pains and agony, he remained strong in faith. Jesus in the gospel told those who want to follow him to be prepared for the hardest because he has no where to lay his head but once they make the decision to follow him, they must not look back. St. Theresa of the Child Jesus endured both persecutions, sickness and pain for the sake of Christ, yet she stood firm till the very end. These are examples for us to follow.
 
Lord, grant us the strength to remain true to our Christian calling and may we never be deprived of the joys of heaven. Amen.
 
Good morning and do have a wonderful day. God loves you.
