Sharing the Word for June 22, 2022

Wednesday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time

June 22, 2022
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Matthew 7:15-20

Jesus spoke of the wide gate that leads to destruction. Now he speaks of prophets who deal in falsehood, and trees that yield rotten fruit. Our world is full of such things. There’s the allure of wealth, the appeal of cheap sexuality, the call to constant comfort, the attraction of power. We’re  invited to frequent a vast library of poisonous ideas–to enjoy an endless buffet of tainted foods.

It’s not easy to identify the prophet of falsehood, the destructive idea, the tree that bears bad fruit. Jesus calls us to be careful about what we assimilate. If we’re wise we will live cautiously.

Are there false prophets in my life? Are there trees that bear bad fruit? How carefully do I live?

Pause and Pray
