USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

Consider your ways!

In the first reading prophet Haggai gives a message to the Israelite’s  to consider

their ways. Sometimes we forget why we are born in this World. We are so much

busy in gathering for ourselves of Worldly possessions , we forget the real mission

of our life. There is only one purpose in our life to love God and love our Neighbor

We forget our main mission in our life and go after the rat race of success and Wealth.

When we forget completely our goal of life and engage in our worldly life, we lose the

balance in our life due to the scarcity of  God’s grace and Evil shows his true colour.

Evil puts disorder in our worldly success and creates confusion through

circumstances and routine work.  When these signs are visible in our life they are the

warning bells . When we follow evil completely , evil claims his authority over our

day today  activities and puts human in to confusion and trouble . This leads us to

destruction and chaos.  when these things happen, God sends his  messengers  to

remind his people to come back to the main purpose of their life.

John the Baptist  spoke the word to King Herod who was living a worldly life with sin,

but Herod never accepted the truth. Whenever the word was spoken to him , his spirit

was disturbed but he never accepted the truth of the word but carried on with his

worldly evil life

When Calamities , disasters, Sicknesses, Death , losses happen to us unexpectedly and all

of a sudden , we must understand that there is something wrong in our life and  must

ponder  in our life and consider our ways and return to God.
