Beware of men

July 12, 2019 6:00 am

“Behold, I am sending you like sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and simple as doves. But beware of men, for they will hand you over to courts and scourge you in their synagogues, and you will be led before governors and kings for my sake as a witness before them and the pagans.” (MT 10: 16-18)

How often do I hear a complaint: how could he/she? Well, this is part of our fallen nature, that we can. It sounds so sad that Our Lord reminds us: “Beware of men.” We can be different, we can be people of trust, of gentleness, of respect. People who are like “sheep in the midst of wolves,” not “wolves.”

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you to all truth and remind you of all I told you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
