Jesus reminds us in the Gospel of Mark that there will be consequences for the choices we make in life, and he also makes it clear that we will not know the day nor the hour of judgment. Our response? To be vigilant at all times as we follow the Lord!
The Lord reproaches the villages where he he performed many mighty miracles. Why? They did not repent and change their lives. May we take this lesson to heart as we turn away from sin and follow Christ.
Sometimes we might be tempted to downplay the presence of evil and final judgment…no so, today, in the Gospel of Matthew! The Lord explains a parable with grim consequences for those who choose to follow the path that leads to death and eternal damnation.
Jesus reminds us in the Gospel of Matthew that there are consequences for our actions that will take place in the final judgment. With this awareness in mind, we have the opportunity today to repent of our sins and turn to the Lord for his mercy and forgiveness.
