Thursday of Week 16 Year 2

Some of us could be quite stubborn or refusing to admit our mistakes. We may prefer to continue living in a particular way of life, or do things a certain way, because we refuse to change or come out of our comfort zone. Some of us may try to change but we procrastinate or are distracted with so many other things that the world has to offer.

In today's Gospel, Jesus tells His disciples about the crowd: "Isaiah’s prophecy is fulfilled in them, which says: You shall indeed hear but not understand, you shall indeed look but never see. Coarse is the heart of this people, they will hardly hear with their ears, they have closed their eyes, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their hearts and be converted, and I heal them." Ultimately, it is our choice. We can choose to change our ways and let God care and heal us just like He did for the disciples; or we can choose to remain like the crowd. Are our hearts so cold and stubborn that we are still like the crowd? Or have we learnt to become more like Jesus' disciples; being open to God's care and healing?
