Tuesday of Week 22 Year 2

Are some of us worldly in our ways? Are some of us spiritual in our ways? Or are there some among us who are leaning more towards worldly ways or spiritual ways? Life is a journey where we discover more and more about ourselves, and sometimes along the way especially while we are young, we may become more attracted to the ways of the world. As we grow older, some of us may begin to realise that the ways of the world is not as satisfying or fulfilling as we may have thought. There are people too who, even though they are getting older, are still clinging on to the ways of the world, thinking that they still have much more to discover and enjoy. What about you? Where are you in the story of your life?

In today's reading, St. Paul reminds us that "An unspiritual person is one who does not accept anything of the Spirit of God: he sees it all as nonsense; it is beyond his understanding because it can only be understood by means of the Spirit. A spiritual man, on the other hand, is able to judge the value of everything, and his own value is not to be judged by other men." We choose and decide which path to take, whether it be spiritual or unspiritual. Some of us may have realised the path we are heading is not the destination we want, and we switch direction. Some may choose to stick to our guns and continue a particular path. Ultimately, let us be mindful of the path we make, for our eternal future is at stake.
