Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: In Luke 17:11-19 from the 28th Sunday of Ordinary Time, why do nine out of ten healed lepers not return to Jesus to thank him? The difference was in his spirit. When we go to Mass, do we go only for our own sake? Or do we also go for God’s sake?
The best experiences in church happen with it’s both. Do you give Jesus your appreciation when he comes to you in the Eucharist? Do you delight him with the way you worship? Does it look like you’re glad to be there? When we pray for our needs, do we make our requests only for our own sake? Or do we want our prayers answered for God’s sake, too? Think about what you’re seeking from him: How helpful could that be to God’s kingdom?
