Tuesday of the 25th Week of Ordinary Time

Give me discernment, that I may observe your law
and keep it with all my heart.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. – Is 55:8-9
God’s Ways are much more superior and pure compare to the most knowledgeable and brave people of this World. We need Science, technology,philosophy,theology, Economics , Political Science, Medicine, legality so on but if these ways do not reveal or help the main purpose of life then these ways remain as only Worldly ways but not heavenly things in our life. If we talk these things to the atheist it is foolishness for them because the Word of God does not make sense to them because they have not understood them or reflected upon the same.
The definition of Word of God is “Complete truth” , all the truths of the World must lead us to the Whole truth the Word of God. Heaven and Earth may pass away but the Wisdom of God will not pass away because this Wisdom is not created but Creator himself the Holy spirit. Heaven experiences and the worldly things are created through the Word of God and must pass away one day or the other in our life. If we hold on to these things we live in half truth of our life or half the Road to the complete truth.If we die at this stage without meeting the Whole truth we have not lived our life.
God has a common plan for every human or discernment or understanding to see the goodness of the Word of God and live it as a testimony to the Wisdom of God. This is the plan of God for every human in their life. When we understand or discern the Word of God , a secret mystery of the kingdom of God reveals us and elevates us to understand our life in the next level of the kingdom of God. Sometimes these levels may be completely foolish or irrelevant in the Eyes of the World but they are very precious or valuable in the Kingdom of God.
The main ingredient of the Word of God is love , if we live in love we live in the Word of God. If any Worldly achievement is not used for love then this achievement is a waste or garbage in the eyes of God. If we live, marry, make Children and become successful people of this World without love , these relationships or achievements are a waste or garbage. In the Kingdom of God or after our death we are not related in flesh to each other but we will be like angels and spiritual beings with no relationships like this World. We must live on this World like Spiritual mothers, brothers and sisters who are united with a common bond called love or the Word of God. Jesus wants us to become his spiritual mother,sister and brother on this Earth and that is the reason he formed the Church. We must make our families spiritual power houses of love and come out of the greed and lust of the World.
Jesus came to this World to spread the Kingdom of love so he was born in the manger like a beggar and died on a cross like a criminal a shameful death . For a Worldly person these activities are least in the Worldly point view but in the Kingdom of love all activities are evaluated or measured through the Word of God or love of God. Let us make love and forgiveness as the main ingredient of the recipe called life and make our life tasty and aromatic and present it in style to the great glory of God.
Prayer : Lord give me the understanding of heart to understand your teaching and follow you. Amen
