SUNDAY REFLECTIONS

Love Extending To Those In Need

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time ( 25 October 2020 )

[ Exodus 22:20-26 , Ps 17:2-4.47.51 , Thessalonians 1:5-10 , Matthew 22:34-40 ]

Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel, counters the notion that that love of God and love of neighbor are two parallel but separate spheres of human responsibility. Rather, they are mutually interdependent loves. The Jews of Jesus’ time often recited the Shema, a pseudo creed taken from the Book of Deuteronomy several times each day to affirm that all that they do flows from their relationship with the God of Israel. Loving God is easy, it conjures up feelings of warmth, fuzziness and gratitude as we look back on what God has done for us like the Jews of yore but the Old Testament isn’t speaking of that kind of love, rather, it speaks of a stubborn, unwavering commitment to imitate God in taking the needs of our neighbor seriously. The true benchmark of a Christian is when he can put the reinterpreted unified teaching of Jesus into practice, our love for God in devotion and piety must extend and reach the human person.

伸出援手的博爱

今天的福音示意敬爱天父与关爱他人两者间截然不同但又息息相关。耶稣时代的犹太人常将敬爱天主的关系的契机建立于感恩天主自古以来照顾犹太民族的事迹,却严重忽略了天主教义中以身效法扶持他人的义务。所以说在衡量自省身为信徒的修行标杆时,我们虔诚忠心弘扬天父教义时,还必须尽所能完整实践于他人,才堪称功德圆满。
