DAILY REFLECTION FOR WEDNESDAY OF THE 12TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME CYCLE II
THEME: BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS
BY: SR. J. K. OSIYEMI EHJ
REFLECTION FOR WEDNESDAY JUNE 22 2022
Mt 7: 15 – 20.
Jesus warns me against false pastors. I know that even if something appears good from a distance, a closer look and study will confirm its fakeness or originality. I cannot give what I don’t have. If I want good harvest, then I have to plant very good seeds. But if I plant bad seeds then I must not expect to reap good fruits. Do I have false friends? Am I a false friend to others? Do I know the fruits (signs) of good/bad friends/prophets?
LET US PRAY
Help me dear Jesus to be a good prophet (friend) who says the Gospel truth, and not just prosperity news that people want to hear. Help me to realize that a false friend/prophet is one who fosters hatred, fights, confusion and division. Remove all falsehood from me. Let the good fruits (joy, peace, kindness, truth, etc) of your Spirit manifest in me. Amen.
