The Rich Man and Lazarus

The Rich Man and Lazarus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Thursday In The Second Week Of Lent

 

Luke 16: 19-31

The Rich man was feasting lavishly every day, what is wrong in this? Today if one is blessed with fine linen, rich food, best of facilities, wealth, he will also feast every day. So what went wrong in the feasting of the rich man. Today in many cases we see, all the hard work is done by our ancestors or by parents and the children enjoying the benefits of this. The problem lies not in enjoying and feasting but failing to see need of our neighbour and thus failing to meet him at his need. Failing to understand the signs and symptoms. God is always actively helping us to notice the needs of our neighbour, in various ways and to help him, but we tend to shut the voice of God, by making excuses etc. Today’s scripture reading of the Rich man and the Lazarus brings out not much of the wealth or riches we have but in and through listening to Gods voice here and now. God calls us to be vigilant in our society and reach out wherever we are required to be an extension of God’s healing and loving presence.  Thus we will leave a bright and fulfilling legacy to our descendants.

Holy Spirit help me, convict me to your truth and to respond  to the needy. Holy Spirit help me to praise you and thank you in all circumstances, especially my my helplessness.
