Luke 11, 15-26:
“He that is not with me is against me; he who does not gather with me scatters.”
These words of Jesus in today’s gospel are a call to leave aside all self-sufficiency and cling tightly to the strength of the Lord.
We believe many times that we can do things, our projects and objectives, based on our fists and of our own efforts.
And we do not acknowledge that without Jesus, everything is useless and all is sterile.
Fully trusting in Jesus cannot mean that we just sit by and wait for the Lord to do everything.
We have to work for the Kingdom of God to continue to grow in the world doing everything “as if everything depended on us., knowing that everything depends on God alone”.
Throughout this day be an instrument in the hands of Jesus so as not to scatter everything you sow that is good and you build positive.
