#9. Is God sending you to one of the people in need who are around you?
Is God sending you to the people in need who are around you?
Dzisiejsze Słowo pochodzi z Księgi Rodzaju (Rdz 32, 25 - 29)
Today’s Reading comes from the Gospel according to St. John (John 2:1-11)
On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples had
also been invited to the wedding. When the wine gave out, >
the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what concern is that to you and to me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants,
“Do whatever he tells you.” Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rites of purification,
each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with water.”
And they filled them up to the brim.
He said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.” So they took it. When the steward tasted
the water that had become wine, and did not know where it came from
(though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the steward called
the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first,
and then the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk.
But you have kept the good wine until now.” Jesus did this, the first of his signs,
in Cana of Galilee, and revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
When we open our eyes to human poverty,
we quickly find that there is a lot of it.
We begin to realize that when we help one person,
the others still remain without help.
We come to head with a very difficult question: who to help?
Allow yourself if only for a moment to feel the weight of this question.
Imagine for yourself that you come to Jesus
and you tell Him about those in need, that you have around you.
In what way can you speak about these people?
The poor that you tell Jesus about are important for Him.
