whoever obeys and teaches

June 12, 2019 6:00 am

“Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.” (MT 5: 19)

“Obeys and teaches” needs to go together. When we teach without observing, our teaching is empty; when we obey without teaching, we are not showing respect to God, Who wants us to proclaim the Good News with many; we become selfish.

“Teach me your paths, my God, and guide me in your truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
