Growing Faith and Engaging Hearts
Sunday, November 26, is Christ the King Sunday. It’s the last Sunday of the Church year. It’s the Sunday we honor Jesus as the king of our lives and the king of the world. In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus was using the general differences in the behaviors of sheep and goats to teach an important lesson about the way He sees people. He observes our behavior and will judge the choices of our hearts. If we are to be the blessed sheep in life, not the cursed goats, we must recognize the needs of others and work to help them. We must strive to treat everyone we meet as if we were serving Jesus Himself. Jesus is looking for service motivated by compassion, rather than service done for show. God’s sheep must follow the example of their compassionate Good Shepherd. Living the Gospel message is how we learn to follow Jesus’ unselfish, loving example. It’s how we avoid being a self-serving, stubborn goat. We should strive to do the work God gives us to do and try to grow our spiritual lives. Do you show love for others as Jesus shows love for you?
