JULY 15, 2018 –
15TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME, Year B
When Jesus sends out His disciples, He gives them two sets of instructions: one about stuff and the other about people. First, he says, pack light. What you need will be provided for you. Second, he tells them, go where you are received and let go where you are not. What amazing lessons for those first disciples and for us! Too many material things make us believe – wrongly – that we are secure. The more stuff we have, the more work we need to do to protect it and the more likely we are to believe it keeps us safe. In reality, this life is a gift, and no amount of planning or stuff makes it less precious. The other lesson seems to take most people well into their older years to learn: not everyone is going to like you. That’s okay. Your mission is where you are received, not where you are rejected. The more you cling to the places that are not for you, the more time you waste missing out on the places that need you. So what stuff do you need to get rid of and stop accumulating to find more freedom? To whom are you clinging and from whom are you hoping to receive approval? On whose love are you missing out?
Let us pray: God of just what we need for the journey, reveal to us the things that hold the keys to our false sense of security. Teach us to trust in you and live more simply. Show us where we are clinging to people who cannot give us what we need. Open our hearts to the people who need us most. Amen.
