21st Sunday of Ordinary Time (2015)

There comes a time when we all have to make a choice, a commitment. The problem we face in committing to something is not to fail to commit but to not live out the commitment fully. What do I mean? Well, as Catholics, we commit to the full and active participation in the Sacrifice of the Mass on Sundays and Holy Days. Often, though, we will miss Holy Days or some Sundays for reasons such as being on vacation, or having the children participating in sports, etc. In other words, we’re not fully committed to be there if something else gets in the way. We make a choice to do something else, to be somewhere else.

Jesus wants our “full committment” to Him. He tells us repeatedly in the Gospels, that He comes first, before father or mother, or sister and brother, etc. He tells us that we can’t put our “hand to the plow and look back.” If we do, “we’re not fit for the reign of God.” How committed are you to Jesus?
