I always do what is pleasing to him.

“When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught me. The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone because I always do what is pleasing to him.” (JN 8: 28-29)

How perfectly married couples understand this: I always do what is pleasing to him/her. Maybe not always, but they know perfectly how beneficial it is to be a gift of self, to be free, creative, and joyful in being the unconditional gift of selves. There is nothing happier than the happiness of our spouses. This is true love. And this is Our Lord’s love to His Father and His Father’s love to Jesus. And we are invited to imitate it and follow this example. 

“The seed is the word of God; Christ is the sower; all who come to him will live forever.” (Verse before the Gospel)
