Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 11,25-27.
At that time Jesus exclaimed, “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
1) Give Thanks: Today is a good day to think about what you have and be thankful to God for it. It is important to look around you and be grateful for what you have. We know we are very demanding, we ask this, we ask that, we ask for help on this we ask for help on that, but today take the time to think what you should be thankful for. Yes, you should thank God for your job, your family, your daily bread. So, look, take a paper and a pen or even in your cell phone and make your list of things for which you have to be thankful. What do you think? It is a very good opportunity to at least write 5 things for which we should thank God. For sure there are more than that, but let’s start with five.
2) Be small: the key to having a grateful heart and give thanks in life is humility. Yes, because a humble person will always be grateful, and a grateful person is a humble person. Realizing that you are nothing, but with God you are everything. How nice it is to lie on your back and look at the sky, see the stars and realize how tiny you are in such a huge universe, nevertheless being so small you are Gods lovely child, you are very important for God.
3) To know: It will be our daily task to continue knowing God and entering into his presence, in contemplation. That is why the key to get to know God better is not getting into so many books, the key to know Him is to get into Him and talk to Him. Keep going with strength because God loves us that is a reason to thank God
