Reflection: Luke 17:1-6
Luke 17:1-6 — 32nd Week of Ordinary Time
Today’s Gospel begins with Jesus once again teaching his disciples. He tells his disciples that it is inevitable that sin will occur. However, he warns his disciples not to do anything that would cause scandal to another person or tempt them to sin. For Jesus, this is one of the worst things we can do.
Jesus tells his disciples to be on their guard. They need to be mindful of what they do and what they say. Their words and their actions will have a positive impact or a negative impact on others. Today Jesus is reminding us to be conscious and aware of our words, our attitudes and our actions. Today we have the potential to be a positive influence or a negative influence! What will be our choice?
