Stewards of God’s Blessings

This week due to the limited amount of time that I have as everything piles up, I will write a poem instead which will be a prayerful reflection of the gospel. My school workload has increased but in this stressful period, I must still continue to trust in Jesus!

Blessings!

Many times, we are given blessings

Blessings that amount to gifts,talents and treasures

But are we grateful for them?

Do we use them to give more than to receive?

Yes, we do keep the commandments

To honour our father and mother

For their sacrifices and pains in bringing us up

In the journey towards eternal life!

However, something is lacking, which is to give and let go

Because letting go is not a sign of weakness

It is a sign of putting others first and helping those in need

In need of our charity and generosity

Are we ready to forsake our material wealth

To follow Jesus?

Yes, for nothing can compare to the treasure and banquet that Jesus has prepared

The treasure in heaven!

Which money nor possessions can buy

Though it might seem like a struggle or seemingly impossible request

To enter the Kingdom of God

We must not lose hope as Jesus promised us

All things are possible for God

For we have to continue to carry out the works of God

With humility and love

For all can be saved, with sincerity in our hearts

For blessed are the poor in spirit

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven!

It is important to be grateful and humbled

by the graces and blessings that Jesus has given us.

Material wealth and possessions are distractions

that distract us from the will of God

and to find the treasure of heaven which we seek.

In the gospel, Jesus says,

“It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God”(Mark 10:17-30).

Therefore, we should not let the riches blind us

from the true reward which only Jesus can give.

For when our earthly journey is over,

it is by the grace and blessings of God

that we are saved from sin and carried into the kingdom of heaven.

That is where we begin our new life in joyful celebration with Jesus.

May we continue to follow Jesus

and to always know that his grace is

sufficient and enough for us.

Keep the faith and press on!

God Bless.

  1. It is refreshing! That is what happens when one turns to using fewer words. It makes me think of Jesus telling us not to babble so as to be heard. Silence Is Golden!
