Tuesday the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time

Peter began to say to Jesus,
‘We have given up everything and followed you.”
Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you,
there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters
or mother or father or children or lands
for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel
who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age:
houses and brothers and sisters
and mothers and children and lands,
with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come.
But many that are first will be last, and the last will be first.”
Mark 10:28-31


Dear Father we love those around us, our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children, house and lands. How often we have put your word and you last in our lives. We go about our daily lives with little thought of you, but our thoughts are focused on what we need for our homes and families. Jesus knew very well how hard it is for us to give up these and follow you. May today be a day where our first thought is of you and when we hear your Word may we reflect on it and put it into our lives and live it. Amen
