Tuesday of Week 25 Year 1

Action speaks louder than words. We have heard many words and speeches throughout our lives, but all this talk is merely hot air, if nothing is done or carried out after that. Sometimes, we come across some politicians who would promise the sky during an election campaign. But after the elections are over and the politician has won, how many of them would actually keep their promises for the good of the people? The same thing goes for many other professions: it is pointless to talk a lot and sound good, without doing what you say.

In today's Gospel, Jesus tells us: "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and put it into practice." We can claim to be related to Jesus, since we are supposed to be brothers and sisters in Christ. But if we only know how to talk but don't do anything, then what sort of brothers and sisters are we? Are we only Christians in name, without action, without making effort to love and care for others? Or are we putting into practice what Jesus has taught us, so that others would know that we ae Christians by our love?
