USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

But each one must be careful how he builds upon it,
for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there,
namely, Jesus Christ.

Contemporary Christian values must be built on radical christian values otherwise the modern Christian values may come in to an error. The World pulls the generation towards material values and this happens not at a time but bit by bit or one day at a time. All things of these World are good if they are built on the Christian values of love and Sacrifice. If the substance of love is missing in any activity , how modern and holy or disciplined it may look like , it is is of no use in the Kingdom of God or in the Eyes of God.

This exactly happens Jesus time, in the temple the true reverence and Holiness was missing and only the rituals were given more importance.Jesus tries to destroy the things which was making the temple unholy and walk away from it because the temple did not have the Spirit of God but only a Commercial Building .

Our lives must be built on christian values of love and Sacrifice, if we choose our priorities in life like our Job, Profession, Shelter , education looking at the financial Profit and Worldly modern life style then we build our lives not on Gospel values of love but on the Worldly material values. These families will be destroyed one day when they encounter the true trials and Supplications , not a single member will be left behind to live in the presence of God because the Spirit of God is completely missing in their life.

In the old testament there were Pagan Kingdoms like Sodom and Gomorrah in which not a single person lived in the Spirit of love but they made World , Flesh and Devil as their God and God destroyed the Whole Nation. We think why there was so much Bloodshed and killings in the old Testament , We see these Godless Nations were 100% Evil and were threat to the whole Creation , God permits the Bloodshed to destroy Evil and evil generation.

It is the same with nations, enterprises, societies, religions so on , if love is not the Purpose of any activity then that activity does not have any value or we can call it as Rubbish. Legislation’s, Policies , Constitutions, must be built on love and not to please the majority . If Majority or Democracy is working on selfish ideologies of themselves or the Majority is not meeting the Sacrificial love then even the Majority and democracy work against the Christ values and not on the foundation of Christ. These Countries or organisations must adopt love as their ultimate goal and must work for love. If legislation’s destroy life like abortion then these legislation’s work against the will of God and God walks away from those Governments or Parties. The legislation’s which discriminate human equality and dignity go against the values of Christ who loved everyone equally.

Our Life is a life given by our Creator and our life must be used for the Will and Purpose of Gods love and service. If we miss the Will of God in our life, the Spirit of God walks away from our life and we are left desolated to be decayed with the things of this World. If we use our life to gather the material of this World like Money, Property , Positions and do all possible Evil to possess them them then for sure we will be destroyed one day like Sodom and Gomorrah. We must bear good fruit for the kingdom of God, if we do not bear good fruit and eat manure and fertile land of this Earth then our tree of life will be cut down and thrown in the fire.

Prayer : Lord Jesus make us people of love and service. Amen.
